I spent over 15 years dealing with chronic pain in the forms of interstitial cystitis (a painful bladder condition) as well as joint and muscle pain and back pain. I’ve used positive affirmations to change my health and my mindset and I want to share some of my favorite daily affirmations for chronic pain healing that have helped me.
You can use positive affirmations for chronic pain simply by saying them aloud, quietly to yourself, or writing them in your journal. Be sure you believe what you are saying for them to really be effective for healing chronic pain.
If there are any of these daily affirmations for health that you don’t believe are possible, skip over those for now. I’ve tried to make all of these affirmations for chronic pain statements that most people will be able to get behind, but some may not resonate with you and that’s okay. Everyone is in a different place in their journey to health. They may feel better later as your pain starts to improve and you feel healthier.
I also have another law of attraction method for healing that I wrote about in this post. It’s helped me so much and I think you’ll love it.
Positive Affirmations For Chronic Pain And Healing
1. My pain is just my body trying to tell me something.
Many times we’re so caught up in our day to day activities that we don’t listen to our bodies. Is this pain serving you in some way? Is it keeping you from feeling any emotions that you don’t want to feel?
2. I have overcome many obstacles in life and this is no different.
Reflect on all the things you’ve overcome in your life. I can guarantee there will be a long list. You can overcome this chronic pain just like you’ve overcome all of those things.
3. My body is healthy and strong.
Look at all the ways that your body is healthy and strong. This chronic pain is only one aspect of your overall health. What other areas are working perfectly?

Your body is performing all these amazing functions every second. You don’t have to think about breathing or beating your heart or digesting food.

Sometimes we can block ourselves from the things we desire by not allowing it in. Make the choice that you will be happy and healthy and you deserve to be.
9. I am listening to what my body is trying to tell me.
Pay attention to what this chronic pain is trying to tell you. Are you holding onto anger? Is there an area in your life where you don’t feel supported?

The body needs rest sometimes to recover. If you’re constantly going and overachieving, take a break and give you body the space it needs to rejuvenate.

Be present. We spend so much time regretting the past and worrying about the future that we don’t live in the moment. All we have is this moment right now. Enjoy it and be grateful for it. Worrying about your pain going away isn’t going to change anything. And thinking about how long you’ve had chronic pain isn’t going to change it either. But taking this moment to release guilt and worry can definitely change everything.
15. I allow my pain to decrease and I begin to feel better and better.
Do you have days where your pain is a little less or a lot less? Show gratitude for those moments.

How To Use Positive Affirmations For Chronic Pain
Don’t forget you should use these positive affirmations for healing chronic pain by saying them or writing them daily. You can also hang the printable PDF of these affirmations somewhere like your bathroom mirror where you can say them as you get ready in the morning and won’t forget.
The key to using any daily affirmations is to find ones that you really believe. If what the affirmation or mantra says seems impossible, then your mind will automatically tell you it’s not possible.
As your health begins to improve, you can add some new ones that maybe didn’t feel right before. Be sure to check in with yourself and see how you feel about each affirmation. If it feels good, use it. If it doesn’t, skip it for now.
