What is chronic pain?
It is possible to feel pain for long periods of time without an injury or damage to your body, or after healing time has occurred.
There are so many factors that influence the way we experience pain. Therefore, we use a biopsychosocial approach to assess and address the numerous contributing factors.
Factors influencing pain
Some of these factors include changes to your central nervous system and immune system, influenced by stress, lifestyle, exercise and tissue changes.
Medical conditions which can be related to chronic pain include:
Chronic pain may get worse during periods of stress, and it might also present with other symptoms, like headaches, muscle tension, or fatigue.
If you have consistent pain that has lasted beyond a few weeks, the team at Rehab Matters can assist you. The treatment strategies and plan we use will be individualized and created in consultation with you. Some of the areas we may target include, pain education, sleep, self-management empowerment, psychosocial support and interventions, exercise, meditation, graded return to and pacing of your daily activities, graded motor imagery, goal setting, fatigue management, stress management and others.
