Pain Management Therapy is for anyone who is currently experiencing physical pain. Those that can benefit are people who are currently experiencing physical pain which can result in emotional difficulties such as depression and/or anxiety or those that have experienced physical pain in the past from accidents, health diagnoses, genetic illness etc. and as a result have continue pain.
The first appointment will be an assessment appointment, this appointment allows client and therapist to meet, understand the main difficulties and agree the number of therapy sessions. This can range between a single session through to eight sessions, however the average is around six sessions. Sessions will normally last between 45 and 60 minutes depending on the therapy model used. Sessions are expected to be weekly as this maintains focus which allows for the most positive outcomes.
Pain management therapy can be either one to one or in a group setting. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness Based Therapy can help facilitate emotional and behavioural change and sometimes acceptance of a current difficult situation. Each session will look at building a tool kit, which will help you to manage your pain. Your personal pain tool kit will be around coping strategies and exercise regimen individualised for each participant.
Evidence has shown that therapy during or after experiencing physical pain can improve emotional well-being by a large percentage, some studies report over 70% improvement in well-being after therapy.
