Improving Sleep And Pain In People With Osteoarthritis Using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Improving Sleep And Pain In People With Osteoarthritis Using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: “A study in the Aug. 15 issue of the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine shows that the use of cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) is an effective treatment for older patients with osteoarthritis and comorbid insomnia. Results showed that treatment improves both immediate and long-term self-reported sleep and pain in older patients with osteoarthritis and comorbid insomnia without directly addressing pain control.”
