Chronic Pain Management for Autistic Adults

Chronic Pain Management for Autistic Adults

Program Scripts and Interview Transcripts can be found by clicking here. Erin Brandel Dykhuizen who is a licensed social worker who specializes in helping Autistics to deal with Chronic Pain Management. Autistic people have very different responses to pain in large part due to our sensory processing disorders. Some Autistic Adults may be hypo-sensitive to pain in that they do not know how much pain they are actually in. Other Autistic Adults who are hypersensitive have pain that is so intense that managing day to day activities is almost impossible. There are many Autistic Adults who live with chronic pain due to conditions like fibromyalgia, arthritis, physical injuries, and of course trauma. Erin will join me to talk about how Autistic Adults can manage their pain in ways that work for them. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/2daysautistic/support
