Chronic pain:

Chronic pain amongst the UK population is a major concern as the number of people suffering is increasing year on year. If you are experiencing pain for over three months you are a chronic pain sufferer.

In a recent article published in the BMJ:

Prevalence of chronic pain in the UK: a systematic review and meta-analysis of population studies

Fayaz A, Croft P, Langford RM, et al

Prevalence of chronic pain in the UK: a systematic review and meta-analysis of population studies

BMJ Open 2016;6:e010364. doi: 10.1136/bmjopen-2015-010364

 

Conclusion: Chronic pain affects between one-third and one-half of the population of the UK, corresponding to just under 28 million adults, based on data from the best available published studies. This figure is likely to increase further in line with an ageing population.

At the Good Health Centre, we like to use the term persistent pain as opposed to chronic pain in the consulting room.   The term Chronic gives the impression that its fixed and immovable as opposed to persistent which is more changeable.

We now understand that the reasons for persistent pain can be multi factorial. The diagnosis and treatment approach need to match.

What does that mean? Well, we need to understand you a lot better to appreciate all the possible contributing factors in your life that might be causing this.

Our treatment approach will follow by introducing a variety of different modalities of care.

For example, we will explore the following:

Body function and movement, Balance, Visual field, Sleep patterns, Previous medical history, operations and traumas, Nutrition, Stress and Resilience to name a few.

By covering all these and many other subjects we can better understand you and your coping strategies and identify blocks to recovery.  Once achieved, understood, and shared we devise a bespoke treatment plan with you in mind with clear goals.

Throughout the treatment plan we will review your progress to make sure we are on track.
