Information for patients

Welcome to the patient information pages of the InHealth Pain Management Solutions website. While it is natural to look for methods to take the pain away, usually through medicine, physiotherapy, or even surgery: quite often chronic pain persists beyond the best attempts of these medical professions. The effects of persistent pain on one’s life can be profound and unfortunate. However, it doesn’t have to be this way. An understanding of chronic pain and its impact on our lives combined with some self-directed management techniques can result in a vastly improved quality of life.

The impact of pain

Pain

  • low back
  • joint pain
  • headache
  • arthritis
  • neuralgia
  • anything…

Physical

  • weak muscles
  • stiff joints
  • less fit
  • increased weight
  • muscle tension
  • poor circulation
  • weak bones
  • loss of function

Emotional

  • stress
  • frustration
  • anxiety
  • tension
  • low mood
  • snappy
  • unhappy
  • passive nature
  • loss of control
  • loss of self-worth

Social

  • less interaction with others
  • reduced hobbies
  • reduced work
  • everything appears like a chore
  • unable to play with children or pets
  • isolation

The above model is taken from suggestions made from our patients regarding the impact that chronic pain has on their lives. It is clear to see that what can begin as a ‘pain’ can lead onto physical and emotional deconditioning and eventual social problems. Through pain management you will see that the three columns to the right can be taken away successfully without medical intervention at all: just self-directed techniques. The beauty of this is that, in time, the overall pain will fall too.
