PAIN MANAGEMENT

It is unbelievable how many people live with pain. Statistics show a staggering 45% of the UK population suffer some kind of musculoskeletal pain with 14 million people living with chronic pain on a daily basis. These figures are a few years old, so I believe this may be even higher, due to the current covid situation.

 

Even though most of us when we experience pain want to get rid of it as soon as we possibly can, pain is a signal, it’s your body’s way of telling you something is wrong whether that is due to injury, stress, posture or illness and we need to listen to it, not ignore it and hope it will go away!

TMJ THERAPY

I don’t believe that pain is something you have live with or put up with and I am passionate about finding out what your body is actually trying to tell you and crucially how to manage that problem to stop the pain coming back. Taking a unique holistic approach, I look at all aspects of your life to get to the root of the problem. 


Acute Pain

Acute pain begins suddenly and is usually related to a fall or injury such as broken bones, cuts, burns, dental work, being involved in an accident or a sports injury. Although short-term it may last weeks or even months, but usually disappears when the underlying cause of the pain has healed or been treated.

 

Chronic Pain

Chronic pain is a different kettle of fish altogether, its complex. It can come on suddenly, seemingly from nowhere, with no obvious reason for the pain. It can be excruciating, unrelenting, long term, difficult to treat and be aggravated by lifestyle choices such as our career, work/life balance, medication, previous illnesses, nutrition, exercise and stress levels. See why it's complex?

 

Getting to the root of the cause and finding lifestyle changes which can manage the symptoms is key. Unlike other traditional practitioners I am passionate about embracing a holistic approach, looking at all areas of your life, the trigger points for the pain and reading our bodies subtle signals I help you to put in place realistic lifestyle changes which will help.

 

A fusion of techniques are used, including trigger point therapy, myofascial release, clinical and sports massage, orthopaedic assessment, soft tissue release, stretching, hot stones, cupping and self-treatment techniques, I have devised my own unique approach to chronic pain.
