What Is A Chronic Pain?
Just about everyone feels pain from time to time. When you cut your finger or pull a muscle, pain is your body’s way of telling you something is wrong. Once the injury heals, you stop hurting.
Chronic pain is different. Your body keeps hurting weeks, months, or even years after the injury. Doctors often define chronic pain as any pain that lasts for 3 to 6 months or more.
Chronic pain can have real effects on your day-to-day life and your mental health. But you and your doctor can work together to treat it.

How can physiotherapy help?
Physiotherapists often see patients with chronic pain on an individual basis. Your physiotherapist will assess you and work with you to agree on a treatment plan. A specific manual treatment such as massage or soft tissue mobilisation may be appropriate, or perhaps acupuncture. However, treatment is more likely to include advice about movement, posture and finding ways of achieving your goals.
A physiotherapist can also identify practical ways to help, such as making sure you have the correct equipment or the right shoes. Physiotherapists also see patients at a pain management clinic, working as part a specialist team. This is more likely to be a group session.
It is important to have regular reviews with your physiotherapist and ask to see them if your condition changes.
