Persistent Pain

Working Out with a Physio Ball

Persistent pain encompasses conditions that go on for over 3 months. If this is the case, you'll often need a healthcare team involved. There can be a number of reasons that pain persists pas the normal healing timeframes. This can include:

  • A chronic disease diagnosis

  • When the body has run out of its exhaustive capacity. This is often when there has been multiple traumatic injuries or surgeries.

  • Sensitisation of the pain pathways from persistent injury. This includes pathways in the body and central nervous system. 

Management of persistent needs to be within a bio-psycho-social framework. This often means a combination if therapies should be used which can include:

  • Stress management. The stress and pain pathways in the brain are inextricably linked. Downregulating stress is pinnacle in managing pain. See the ebook for more information

  • Manual therapy to restore movement options

  • Pain education and pacing strategies

  • Training biomechanics and strengthening.
