What is Pain management?
In Physiotherapy, Pain management is the most mainstream of all non-surgical treatments that are highly effective in treating all types of chronic musculoskeletal and neuropathic types of pain. Your physiotherapist will identify the precise source of chronic pain and employe a customized treatment plan to alleviate the pain. The treatment plan may be a combination of passive pain-relieving techniques such as massage therapy, TENS, Heat/cold therapy and more.
Guided by the history of the pain, its intensity, duration, aggravating and relieving conditions, and structures involved in causing the pain, your physiotherapist will develop an appropriate list of activities to engage in and to avoid, as well as to develop and instruct you on a proper treatment program. You can experience enough pain relief during the treatment and helps you to progress to an active exercise program.
