Chronic Pain : How can we manage it?
Have a quick watch at this video…
Pain and understanding why we have pain can be a tricky concept. Pain is the body’s natural response when it feels off kilter. It is sending signals that something within the body may not be firing on all cylinders. Our response may include limiting movement and activities of daily living. We become more fearful of approaching everyday tasks including remaining at work and sleep quality can be poor.
The longer we have chronic pain the harder it is for us to “tame the beast”. We ‘feed’ our pain receptors.
That is why coming and speaking to us here at Physioflexx will help. We will ensure that you have the education to know that movement is safe. This will allow for the return of function and reduce the pain and improve your overall quality of life.
Chronic pain can be quite debilitating and often a lonely experience. There is support available between GPs and us as Allied Health Care Professionals. The NHS website provides more information on managing pain if you wish to take a look.
We can offer you at Physioflexx a range of other treatments that can have an impact;
