More About Pain Relief

Many people struggle with long-term pain. But help from your GP or complementary medecine can lessen the pain, improve your independence and help you cope in general.

Some people may have a condition such as arthritis or diabetes nerve pain. Others may have a painful condition that medical science doesn't fully understand, such as long-term back pain.

Often, chronic pain is an illness in its own right, due to a fault or malfunction in the body's pain system.

It's important that people, including doctors and other clinicians, take you and your pain seriously. The answer to managing your pain may not necessarily be stronger and stronger painkillers (analgesics).

People with long-term pain often have a variety of problems. The emotional consequences come not just from the pain, but from how the pain changes the way they live their lives and perhaps the way they think about themselves.

There are two main types of pain:

•Acute pain, also known as short-term pain, is pain that has started recently
•Chronic, or long-term pain, is pain that has lasted for three months or more

If you have short-term (acute) pain, you should visit your GP so they can try to make a diagnosis and treat the pain. However, if you have already consulted your GP and are still not satisfied, like many thousands of sufferers you may find that complementary medicine may have a solution to help you cope with pain.

The Devon Clinic offers a wide choice of complementary health treatments that can help you deal with ongoing pain: acupuncture, massage, hypnotherapy, reiki, all touch on pain and can help provide mental and phsyical relief.

If you have long-term pain, it might be as a result of a diagnosed medical condition, a painful condition that is not yet fully understood or no underlying condition at all. This doesn't mean you don't have pain, it means that a different approach to managing that pain might be helpful.

If your pain is more severe and affecting your quality of life, damaging your mobility and stopping you leaving the house, you could probably benefit from a referral to your local Pain Clinic or complementary health clinic such as ours.

There are around 300 Pain Clinics in the UK. Most are located in hospitals and have teams of staff from different medical areas, including occupational therapists, psychologists, doctors, nurses and physiotherapists. They all work together to help people with pain. Pain clinics vary but usually offer a variety of treatments aimed at relieving long-term pain, such as painkilling drugs, injections, hypnotherapy and acupuncture. You will need to be referred to a Pain Clinic by your GP or hospital consultant.

You may also want to try a Pain Management Programme. A series of sessions, for groups of 6-8 people, aimed at teaching you how to live with your pain. Instead of treating your pain, you learn to cope with it, gaining skills such as setting realistic goals and managing your moods and pain flare-ups. Research shows that after going on a pain management programme, the patient's confidence grows and they can expect to enjoy a better quality of life, sleep and mobility as a result. Some hospital and community pain services offer pain management programmes, and some are run by GPs. As with pain clinics, you will need a referral from a GP or hospital specialist to join a pain management programme.
