Pain management & rehabilitation
This workshop explores how and why we experience pain so we can learn how to support the body in what it’s trying to achieve, reduce movements and tasks that aggravate or worsen any condition present, relieve pain where possible or look at adaptations to lifestyle and activities that will reduce the impact pain is having on someones quality of life. Learn how to manage pain or be confident in advising others on what they can realistically achieve.
Who is this workshop for?
Anyone who suffers from chronic pain or has a personal or occupational interest in the effective management of pain.
Health and fitness professionals including coaches, fitness instructors, personal trainers, sports & massage therapists, osteopaths, nurses, GP’s and Physiotherapists.
What we will discuss:
Why we experience pain; look at what triggers a pain response, the structures involved and how they work.
The body’s response to injury/trauma; in simple terms, learn how the body repairs itself, the recognisable stages and symptoms of this and the methods it employs to prevent us making an injury worse.
The effects of protective spasms, prolonged immobility and the adaptations we make to our movements and way of living, if pain becomes persistent.
Medical interventions; the use and effects of pain relievers including cortisone injections and TENs machines.
Self treatments; cryo and heat therapy, exercises, relaxation techniques and how to create safe, effective and progressive management programmes for a variety of conditions.
