MBSR, or Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, is a therapeutic option to help improve pain and chronic diseases. It is shown to have clinically relevant reductions in medical and psychological symptoms across a wide range of medical diagnoses, including chronic pain conditions. MBSR helps patients learn how to use their innate resources and abilities to respond more effectively to stress, pain, and illness.
