Our team delivers all the elements of an intensive Pain Management Program (PMP). Individuals are led through 24-steps comprising of pre-recorded videos, exercises and assignments to practise in their own time.
The objective of the program is for participants to improve their health questionnaire scores for Anxiety (GAD-7), Depression (PHQ-9) and Disability (ODI). This is achieved through the practice of pain self-management methods, exercise, lifestyle changes and cognitive approaches learnt throughout the program.
We recommend participants aim to complete the program in a month, but it can be done at their own pace, taking breaks when needed. There are also set break points within the program to help pace progress.
By the end, participants will have gained knowledge and practical skills to foster over the long-term, which help to let go of the fear of pain and see there are ways and means to live a normal life again.
Participants meet the pain-medicine experts Dr Arul James who will be guiding and supporting them, and learn about the mechanics of pain and the way we think about pain. We assess how pain is affecting different areas of their lives.
Individuals explore and practice relaxation and meditation techniques to manage pain. Learn about the relationship between tension and pain and improve their approach to pain recovery activities such as sleep. the package includes a course of Yoga will our expert instructor.
Participants learn to understand chronic pain and fear it less. Re-examine their thoughts about pain and the situations they occur in. Explore ways to challenge and change unhelpful thinking about pain. Our package includes support from a CBT therapist.
