Pain management treatment tends not to be offered by general physiotherapy practices. It’s a highly skilled and specific service assisting the patient to come to terms with their pain and to learn how to manage complex pain presentations and altered lifestyle.
WHAT WILL YOUR APPOINTMENTS INVOLVE?
This is a different approach than a conventional physiotherapy appointment. All appointments will last approximately one hour and on average you will need 3 – 4 appointments in total.
After these appointments you will often be supported via telephone with the aim to aid self-management and improve daily function. We will give you the help you need to allow yourself to gain control of your life again.
WHAT WILL YOUR APPOINTMENTS HELP?
- Long standing pain that has failed to respond significantly to any previous treatment
- Pain affecting your daily function both at work and at home
- People who feel they are being controlled by their pain
- People who are trying hard to cope with their lifestyle
