Solving the problems associated with treating chronic pain
We aim to end the cycle of tests, investigations and specialist referrals.
We offer advice about which medications and doses are likely to be useful in chronic pain.
We offer a broad range of tools to overcome psychological hurdles. Acceptance and committment therapy is just one of the tools we use.
We assist patients to establish achievable healthy living goals. Barriers to moving forward are explored.
Specific interventions in the context of whole person pain management are helpful. All patients are given sedation for their procedures.
Persistent pain is less about the tissue and nerve injury at the site of the original trauma.
It is more about the patterns of increased activity in the brain and spinal cord. The good news is that the central nervous system is not hard wired. It is neuroplastic , that is, it can change its own structure.
Empowering the patient to actively manage their pain encourages new neural pathways. Hence, long term the patient has less central sensitisation, activity avoidance and worry.
This is a fundamental shift in direction from medications and procedures to treat pain to the development of a whole person approach. Eventually, the person learns skills in self management to reduce their reliance on medical treatments
Our dedicated specialists offer a multi-disciplinary approach to pain management which combines medical and holistic techniques.
By recognising the social, psychological and physical factors that contribute to pain, we can give your patients the best chance of managing their pain and regaining their quality of life.
With more than a decade’s experience in the field, our team offers a fresh approach to pain management. Recognising pain as a ‘whole person’ issue, our process incorporates a variety of treatment options and results in more favourable patient outcomes.
