If you experience ongoing pain and discomfort you probably know your emotions often feel just as intense, and it’s easy to feel stuck. Why not take a few minutes during May, which is Mental Health Month, to focus on yourself and how you can heal?

Knowing that your physical and mental health often go hand in hand is an important step to changing your experience with back and other joint pain. Here’s a helpful article from Hinge Health, our digital exercise therapy benefit, on effective strategies that can help you Reframe Your Thoughts.

 And getting the right care is important – and available to you. If you haven’t already, consider signing up for Hinge Health and join your co-workers who, on average, cut their pain by almost 50% and decreased symptoms of depression and anxiety by more than half.
