What is Chronic Pain Management

Physiotherapy plays a notable role in helping manage chronic pain. Chronic pain is defined as pain that persists for longer than 3 to 6 months, even after the initial injury or inflammation has healed. Instead of trying to mask the pain with medication, physiotherapy focuses on addressing the root causes to improve your overall well-being.

How Physiotherapy Helps:

  • Identifying Triggers: Physiotherapists work with you to understand what triggers your pain. Whether it's poor posture, muscle imbalances, or specific movements, they are here to help pinpoint the factors that contribute to your pain.

  • Developing Custom Plans: Following the initial assessment, physiotherapists aim to create personalized treatment plans that will best cater to your individual needs and lifestyle.

  • Targeted Exercises: Physiotherapists are here to help guide you through specific exercises that target the affected area. The prescribed exercises will help you gradually build strength, increase mobility, improve function, and manage your pain.

  • Manual Therapy: Physiotherapists use hands-on techniques to mobilize joints and release soft tissue. This can help reduce pain, enhance range of motion, and benefit overall well-being.

  • Patient Education: Gaining an understanding of your condition and its accompanying symptoms is essential. Physiotherapists are excellent resources in educating you about your condition and the steps you can take to manage it.
