Pain Management

Chronic pain can affect individuals physically and can have many negative emotional, social and psychological effects. It affects individuals in a variety of tasks such as, personal and domestic tasks, in work and in leisure, and can affect relationships. Individuals with chronic pain often report feelings of depression, frustration, worry, sadness or helpless due to the severity of the pain that they are experiencing. Pain management is a self-management approach to deal with chronic pain. It includes a number of strategies and techniques that can help individual's manage their own pain effectively and to feel more in control of it. The pain management approach should not be seen as a treatment or cure for pain. Instead it is a way for individuals to make their pain more manageable so that it interferes less with their life and improve the quality of their life.

Our Pain management programmes aim to:

  • Offer individualsmaterial and training about pain
  • Educate individuals a selection of methods, approaches and skills to manage their pain
  • Help individuals to feel more in control of their pain so that their pain does not control them

Pain management requires a multi-disciplinary team, offering a wide spectrum of approaches to reducing pain and improving the lives of individuals with long term pain problems.
