Published: 28/06/2023


Chronic or persistent pain can significantly impact an individual’s physical and emotional well-being. Over time, it often leads to functional limitations, stress, anxiety, low mood and strained relationships. This case study focuses on a male patient with long-standing back pain resulting from a work-related incident. The patient also experiences anxiety, low mood, and a needle phobia that complicates the treatment options, including injection therapy. This case study explores the potential benefits of hypnosis in managing chronic or persistent back pain and addressing needle phobia to enhance the patient's overall well-being.
