Knee pain, shoulder pain, back pain, headaches, osteoarthritis – we all know someone living with these conditions. Globally it is estimated that one in five people lives with chronic pain, with prevalence increasing as people age and left untreated.
The good news is that physiotherapy provides effective pain relief, as it treats the cause of pain, rather than simply masking it. While it may seem the opposite, movement is the best thing you possibly can do while suffering from chronic pain. Movement helps the body heal, enhances immunity, whereas avoiding it often gets you caught in a vicious cycle of pain, immobility, weakness, functional decline resulting in disability and loss of well-being.
Our physiotherapists will perform an initial assessment as soon as you arrive to determine where the pain originates. After evaluating your symptoms, we will establish whether your pain is acute, subacute, or chronic. Once we find you fit and safe for treatment, we will begin your physiotherapy treatment. With our twenty years of experience in pain management, we’ve learned that determining the underlying structure for cause is imperative. The causes are broadly classified into bone injury, soft tissue injury and internal organ malfunctions.
Making you bounce back to life without having to think about your pain is our goal! Usually acute pain resolves in one or two sessions.
In the event of chronic pain, after moderating your pain to a lower score, we will encourage you to move and adapt a healthier lifestyle to break the pain cycle and prevent recurrence. When it comes to chronic pain, exercise is the key.
