Chronic Pain Management
Each year, we care for around 2,700 new patients, 6,800 follow-up patients and 2,300 day case patients.
There are many different ways to help you manage your chronic pain – a bit like a jigsaw. Your pan is completely individual and so are your problems managing that pain, so it follows that you’ll need a tailored programme that works for you.
The benefit of a “jigsaw” approach is that you can make each piece as big or as small as you need. Most people require all of the jigsaw parts, even if their individual role is small.
Piecing together your jigsaw takes time and practise. We hope that each session with us helps you work out how each part works best for you – combining pacing activity, exercise, relaxation, medication, family/work support, and looking at your mood will help you to manage your day to day pain.
This is where you’re the expert – no professional knows your pain quite like you do.
