ABOUT PAIN

For a person to be in pain can be an exhausting experience, not only at a physical level but also
emotionally and spiritually.

An holistic approach is taken in this
Pain Management
Program.

Experiencing pain can start to cloud one's view of one's life and can have an impact on how one thinks, feels and certainly on one's capacity to undertake physical activities in the same manner prior to the pain experience.

If it is severe pain, it can effect one's capacity to be able to carry out what is termed 'normal activities of daily living.

If this is so then there are major losses experienced which can effect self-confidence, self-esteem, one's independance, loss of status in one's family and in society in general and may even effect one's capacity 'to earn a living' .

All of these changes in circumstances can have a detrimental effect on one's relationships and often a person will begin to feel helpless and hopeless in the face of all of this.

Initially a thorough assessment is made,
taking all of the above issues into consideration
as well as the following
  • to understand the nature of the pain e.g. where it is sited, how it is experienced
  • the severity of the pain i.e. the client rates the pain on detailed pain charts
  • the limitations and effect the pain has on 'Activities of Daily Living
  • to explore the relationship i.e. attitude the person has with the pain
The approach to treatment will be tailored to the individual needs of the client following
the above assessment
being mindful that
prolonged and chronic pain has an impact
on all aspects of one's life.

Pain Management will focus on some if not all of the following:

  • PHYSICAL INTERVENTIONS - BODYWORK
  • EMOTIONAL - COUNSELLING
  • SPIRITUAL ASPECTS
  • TECHNIQUES FOR CHANGE - SELF CARE STRATEGIES
  • COGNITIVE - PRINCIPLES OF COGNITIVE BEHAVIOUR THERAPY
