The Specialist Pain Physio Clinics in London deliver effective physiotherapy treatment, training and coaching programmes for persisting pain and injury. Using the latest neurosciences, the programmes target all the dimensions of pain: physical (where you feel it, the nature and intensity of the experience; the neurobiology), cognitive (what you think about the pain) and emotional (how it makes you feel and how these emotions affect pain perception). By addressing all the manifestations of the problem in a comprehensive manner and by fully engaging the individual in the process, we tap into our ability to change (neuroplasticity) and grow, to progress to a place of wellness, performance and living.
Creating the conditions for health
The programmes are created for the individual patient so that they may reach their goals. Typically it would include pain biology education (know your pain), healthy and nourishing movement strategies that also build confidence and awareness, specific brain focused therapies that target adaptations in the brain (eg/ the graded motor imagery programme, sensory training and integration), day to day activity management and progressions, relaxation strategies and mindfulness based stress reduction, focused-attention training and motivational techniques. Complimenting the proactive training aspects are tissue based therapies to mobilise and nourish joints and soft tissues to ease tension and pain.
The biopsychosocial model of care used is the way that chronic pain and injury should be tackled with full engagement of the patient. Common reasons for people to come to the clinic include:
