Understanding Pain

As much as treating your pain we understand the importance tof  helping you understand why you have pain in your joints, muscles and soft tissues. Understanding pain will help you to manage and overcome it. When in pain, most people want to take pain killers and stay immobile till the pain disappears. Studies have shown that exercise and movement is one of the best options for chronic pain. Your physiotherapist will offer advice and prescribe a safe programme according to your problem so you can keep moving.

Acute pain: short-term pains act as an alarm, telling us that something is wrong. While most minor pains are easily treated and quickly forgotten, others are a sign of something more serious that we shouldn’t ignore. For example, the pain of a broken leg is helpful because it makes us rest the leg until it heals.

Chronic pain is usually defined as pain that persists beyond the normal time that tissues take to heal following an injury. Most soft tissue injuries heal up within weeks, although some can take several months to completely heal. If a pain continues longer than 3-6 months, it is usually described by pain specialists as “chronic” or persistent pain. The causes of chronic pain are not always clear but in some conditions the pain is thought to be due to the pain signals through the nerve fibres becoming confused. The brain is then unable to understand the signals properly
