Chronic Pain

Chronic pain affects millions of people in the UK, so you’re not alone. It can have a huge impact on your quality of life, and can also affect the lives of your family and those around you. Chronic pain is pain that has lasted for longer than 3 months after the usual recovery period for an illness or injury. It may be as a result of a chronic condition.

It may start with a definite problem at a certain time or come on gradually, perhaps for no obvious reason. It may even come on some time after an event; where you have managed an activity at the time but you feel pain afterwards. Chronic pain can be felt in a specific part of the body, e.g. back, shoulder, legs, or more generalised, throughout the body. The pain may be continuous or occasional, you may feel more sensitive to pain and it may sometimes be prone to flaring up or getting worse very quick

How common is chronic pain?

  • Pain occurs in 1 in 100 adults in the UK at any one time
  • Pain is more common in older adults

How can we help?

We can offer a range of individual therapy and/or Pain management programmes which are a series of sessions, for groups of 6-8 people, aimed at teaching you how to live with your pain. Instead of treating your pain, you learn to cope with it and, research shows, can expect to enjoy a better quality of life, sleep and mobility afterwards.

Firstly you will benefit from an assessment with one of our therapists were you will have an opportunity to talk about your difficulties and what your goals are. During your assessment you will be able to discuss treatment options with your therapist, where you may both decide on a therapy that is best suited to your needs.

To speak to someone in confidence for advice or to arrange an appointment please contact our team on Freephone 0800 230 0688
