Chronic pain influences individuals in different spheres of life. When a person experiences pain, it affects their physical being, thought patterns as well as their emotions. Behaviour and cognitive responses such as fear, anxiety and perceptions about the future becomes part of their pain experience.
Our practice started to embrace both individually tailored and group approaches to assist this client group. The type of programme that best suits the individual who experiences complex pain, are determined by a baseline consultation comprising an interview and functional assessment. Thereafter, the best pain management approach is recommended to the individual taking the persons specific challenges and psychosocial risk factors into consideration.
