Art as a tool to manage pain

“I had also used arts and crafts previously in my own experience to help with healing. Including the previous year when I had a breast cancer recurrence did many crochet projects and took classes in mosaics making as I navigated from victim to survivor. However, following my catastrophic accident, I didn’t know how to do these activities until I could again use my left arm. Which now I am a little thankful for, as I might not otherwise have been as open to trying drawing.

As I go forward, I will be taking myself more seriously as an artist and looking to learn how my patients can access actively learning art as a tool to manage pain.”

Martha Sommers is a family physician.

She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “Art as a tool to manage pain.”
