PAIN MANAGEMENT PHYSIOTHERAPY
More and more people suffer from pain and chronic pain disorders. Understanding how pain mechanisms work is a decisive factor in combatting pain.
In order to provide a satisfactory diagnosis of a patient´s painful condition it is important to investigate cause and effect.
It is of vital importance that both therapist and patient are aware and well-informed of the pain record and the factors that influence the progression and development of the painful condition.
Effective and successful pain management require not only competent and extensive medical supervision from the therapist´s side but also patience, drive and cooperation from the patient´s side. Experience shows that a patient´s positive long-term recovery very often depends on his/her willingness to question and perhaps even change his/her previous behavioural patterns.
With therapist and patient working hand in hand, based on a trusting and cooperative relationship, an effective pain therapy is quaranteed.
