PAIN MANAGEMENT PROGRAM

There are different ways to treat pain, as it is a complex thing. Pain is inevitable in our lives. It is the body’s way of letting the mind know that something went wrong. Sometimes the pain itself is the problem, sometimes it is an indication of an underlying problem.

Persistent pain may lead to other problems such as feelings of isolation, anxiety, depression, insomnia, fear of activity etc. Pain Management becomes important.

  • Planning activities and exercises that the patient can do without increasing the pain level.
  • Imparting various relaxation techniques to reduce stress and tension in the body.
  • Improving general strength and fitness by advising on exercises and stretches.
  • Designing a personalised management plan for each patient.
  • Assisting with the return to activities that have been cut down due to pain, using the principles of graded activity and goal setting.

We focus on the following methods for Pain Management:

  • Education (posture, pacing, disease, remaining active)
  • Exercise (aerobic, strengthening, stretching, motor control)
  • Manual therapy ( joint mobilization and manipulation)
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Heat modalities (hot packs, ultrasound)
  • Cold modalities (ice pack, ice bath)
  • Motor imagery
  • Sensory re-education
  • Virtual reality
