Get Treated Chronic Pain with Physiotherapy: Non-Pharmacological Approaches
Chronic pain is a complex condition that can significantly impact an individual's quality of life. While medications may provide temporary relief, they often come with side effects and are not a long-term solution.
Physiotherapy offers a non-pharmacological approach to managing chronic pain, focusing on holistic care and improving physical function.
In this blog, we will explore the benefits of physiotherapy in TREATING chronic pain and highlight non-pharmacological approaches employed by physiotherapists.
At Benphysio, we are committed to helping individuals find relief from chronic pain through tailored physiotherapy interventions.
1. Understanding Chronic Pain:
Chronic pain is pain that persists for longer than three months, often resulting from underlying conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, or nerve damage.
2. The Role of Physiotherapy in Chronic Pain Treatment:
Physiotherapy offers a holistic approach to TREATING chronic pain by addressing its underlying causes, improving physical function, and promoting overall well-being. Here are some key benefits of physiotherapy in chronic pain Treatment.
a. Manual Therapy: Hands-on techniques such as joint mobilization, soft tissue massage, and myofascial release are employed by Benphysio physiotherapists to alleviate muscle tension, reduce pain, and improve joint mobility. We are #No1 hands-on physiotherapy in market.
b. Therapeutic Exercises: After having pain for such a long duration, some important muscles have “forgotten” or “weaken” how to contract or “fire”. Tailored exercise programs play a crucial role in Treating chronic pain.
c. Posture and Ergonomics: Physiotherapists assess and provide guidance on optimal posture and ergonomic techniques to minimize strain on the body, eg: how to sit in office, how to stand in kitchen with a stool, how to cook in hawker stall, how to stand during baby carrying, etc. Sometime, there is a need to alter your table’s height as well.
d. Pain Education: In Benphysio, we totally DISAGREE with Pain Education or Pain management. Pain Education comes into picture because Medical Professions FAILED to find the root cause for pain!!
e. Physical Therapy Modalities: in Benphysio, we hardly use modalities to provide pain relief and promote healing. These modalities can only help relieve symptoms but not treat your problem(s).
3. Tailored Treatment Plans:
Physiotherapists recognize that each individual's experience of chronic pain is unique. Benphysio conducts comprehensive assessments to understand and develop personalized treatment plans that address the individual's needs, goals, and limitations.
4. Multidisciplinary Collaboration:
Physiotherapy often involves collaboration with other healthcare professionals to provide the BEST solutions.
5. Empowering Self-Management:
Physiotherapy empowers individuals to take an active role in managing their chronic pain by EDUCATING patients “What is wrong with them”, “the Mechanism of pain”.
Physiotherapy offers a valuable non-pharmacological approach to TREATING chronic pain. By addressing the underlying causes, improving physical function, and promoting overall well-being, physiotherapy plays a significant role in enhancing the quality of life for individuals living with chronic pain.
