Pain is one of the main reason that people seek help from a physiotherapist, and often a short course of treatment will resolve the underlying cause and the person will return to their normal activities pain free. However many people have pain which is long-standing and perhaps hasn't responded to previous treatments. This called persistent (or chronic) pain. Often this pain can stop these people from getting on with what they want to do. Our understanding of how each of us makes pain has really moved on in recent years as a result of exciting scientific research in this area. By exploring the many factors which influence our pain in a good or bad way we can get to understand our pain better and start to change it. This takes time and patience but is a very rewarding and worthwhile journey.
At Physiofit all our physios have training on the latest pain research. We use this knowledge with every patient that we treat to help prevent pain from becoming persistent.
Our specialist in persistent pain Janet Betts does work with those who come to us with long standing problems with pain. She can provide a safe, supportive environment for the process of understanding pain and therefore begin to manage and resolve it. This can be done in 1-1 sessions or through group work where Janet uses Pilates based exercise to enhance the process. Janet also has links with local clinical psychologists to provide a holistic approach.
