The definition of chronic pain is pain lasting for more than 3 months. It can be primary – of no known cause, or secondary to another underlying condition such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, fibromyalgia and endometriosis. Chronic pain impacts the lives of those affected and their immediate family and friends. Work, sleep and emotional wellbeing are all affected.
Over 70% of patients who visit my clinic have chronic pain. In coordination with treatment from the NHS, I work with these patients to provide education, diet and exercise advice, self management strategies as well as treatment options to reduce pain and promote relaxation and wellbeing. Patients appreciate my individual patient centred assessment and the time I can give to discuss their condition in detail.The treatment, care and support plan is developed with my patients needs in mind and shared decision making. Usually with these patients I offer a course of 4-6 sessions initially with the option of regular check ups. Understanding their pain, management of individual goals and abilities and future health impact are all areas I cover.
