Chronic Pain Management

We help people to manage their chronic and complex pain with education, graded exercise and focussed interventions.

About Chronic Pain Management

Chronic pain can be a significant barrier to progress and have a huge impact on a person’s life.

Clients’ frequently identify pain as a significant problem following complex trauma and managing pain is often identified as a goal at the initial assessment. The causes of pain are often complex, multifactorial and appropriate inter-disciplinary pain management is key to achieving the best possible results from rehabilitation.

TraumaPhysio clinicians work closely with pain management specialists and psychologists to develop comprehensive treatment approaches that address biological, cognitive and emotional processes. Pain can have a significant effect on the client’s attitude and beliefs, causing psychological distress and a change in behaviour whilst affecting their social interaction including relationships and community engagement.

TraumaPhysio Pain Management

Pain can be difficult to quantify and clients’ often find it hard to articulate what’s happening and how they feel about it.

TraumaPhysio believe that to understand pain you also need to understand the person. Our physiotherapists’ use a variety of methods to ensure a thorough exploration of what can be a very complex picture. We use pain scores, patient reported outcome measures, functional scoring, movement observation and participation levels to give insight into the different facets of the client’s pain presentation.

Helen worked with my 88 year old Mum following her knee replacement. I was very very impressed. Personable, knowledgeable, supportive, she got my Mum full mobilised and back playing bowls. She had her operation in November 2018 and was she was back playing bowls in January 2019. My Mum has now had a refurbishment of her replacement hip and I have no hesitation in going back to her and recommending her to others.

An inner ear problem last July that developed into vestibular neuritis led to problems with the muscles, nerves and joints in my neck which caused nausea, dizziness, vision problems as well as the usual aches and pain. In February I came to the Physio4 You team in despair. Rachel did a thorough vestibular assessment and was able to reassure me that the vestibular problem was resolved. I was then given Helen’s details for the neck issues. She has been a real Godsend. She is calm, friendly, reassuring and professional. After a thorough exam in which she listened carefully to my history of symptoms, she took time to explain what the problem was and a plan for treatment going forward. This problem has caused me real anxiety at times. She set my mind at rest that I will get better. I am still undergoing treatment but there has been a vast improvement. She takes time to answer all my questions and I always leave feeling so positive. I would thoroughly recommend their services
