ACPA Consumer Guides and Informational Tools

Pain is frightening and it can affect our work, family relationships, and ability to function. It is important that people with pain take an active role in the treatment of their pain from the beginning. The way to do this is to learn about your condition and treatment options so you can work with your health care team productively. These consumer guides and informational tools have been developed to help you make sense of some of the choices you have and why they are being recommended. They can also help you to understand why some tests and treatments are not recommended for you.
