Natural Pain Management

Pain is felt differently and is unique to every person. Therefore, natural pain management is an adaptable technique to suit the individuals needs and requirements.

Understanding what pain is

Pain Explained

Pain is personalised and unique to each person. Our practitioners will first assess and determine the impact of the pain you feel. Pain can affect daily life and daily routines such as work, home and recreational activities. That is why there is no one-size-fits-all approach to pain management. Natural pain management is an alternative to pain treatments that rely heavily on surgery, drugs and medication.

Chronic Pain

The Occupational Therapist works improve a person’s function and independence. The first step is to identify the amount of activity and rest that is right for a person in pain. With chronic pain, it’s about managing the stress that comes with the pain, improving one’s sleep, and selecting devices that can help a person throughout the day. Most importantly, it’s about choosing the right activities and movements that help a person manage and reduce the chronic pain.

Recurring Pain

If you are bothered by pain from an old sports injury, car accident or some other injury, or simply need to correct years of poor posture, we can help with your rehabilitation. Sometimes, changes to the ergonomics at your workplace or your home can prevent further aggravation of pain. In other cases, orthotics, specialised footwear, or assistive tools may be recommended to manage the causes of pain.

Active Care Tools for Managing Pain

As part of the Active Care plan, the practitioner provides “pain education” and helps a person set realistic goals, to learn good movement techniques, and exercises to reduce the pain with self-care skills to cope with pain flare-ups.
