Pain management - Physiotherapy, Hand Therapy and Occupational Therapy Implications
management is a very diverse topic, and with much diverse approaches,
given the fact that pain is a very subjective matter, with every
individual responding differently to it. Physiotherapy intervention will
focus on physical and mechanical pain relief methodology, whereas the
occupational therapy intervenes through more cognitive and mental
strategies such as visualization, rationalization and desensitization
approaches. We understand that pain that is long term also can
cause and keep patients depressed and anxious. Disturbances such as
sleep and insomnia, substance abuse and chronic headaches are
commonplace. We will do our best to help you deal with the pain, and
refer you to professionals whom we know can help you if necessary.
Effect of pain on cognition and mental tasks
reveal that chronic long-term pain impacts and affects one’s cognition and mental
acuity. It is common when patients have a common complain –
forgetfulness, attention deficits, and difficulty completing tasks. This
is normal, as pain distracts and limits participation in activities.
Physiotherapy, occupational therapy and hand therapy can help.
