Chronic Pain is a long term pain condition that is a consequence of a range of medical problems. It affects not only the individual but also the people around them.
Acute pain serves to protect us by giving us a warning that something is wrong. However Chronic pain serves no useful purpose. It impacts sleep, mood, mobility and enjoyment of family and social life, thereby reducing quality of life.
Whilst there are no cures yet for many chronic pain conditions, it is possible to reduce the intensity and impact of pain suffered. In line with the current best medical practice and personal experience, we aim to manage Chronic pain with a 'bio-psycho-social' approach. This acknowledges that social and psychological factors can play a significant role in the development and the impact of Chronic pain.
