Following a thorough assessment, we start by educating you about pain and some of the most up to date research that has been completed to help in recovery from your ongoing pain. The aim of this is to support you in approaching how you think, feel and behave whilst having pain differently. This will hopefully enable you to make the appropriate lifestyle adjustments.
Any barriers that might be contributing to your ongoing pain will be highlighted as part of your treatment and you will be supported in tackling these. Although traditional ‘hands on’ physiotherapy can be used as part of the pain coaching program, long term improvement and change is best achieved when used alongside appropriate lifestyle changes. The aim of pain coaching is to teach you to cope better rather than leading to a reliance on ‘hands on’ treatment.
