PainWISE – Week 2: A co-presentation between Physio Gym TM and Chemist Works Presenters Brendan Nelmes (Physio Gym) and George Adattini (Chemist Works) We are happy to say we had a very successful session with our participants sharing:
- An understanding about their pain experience
- Determining their goals for regaining meaningful experiences
- Breaking down painful experiences and reconstructing them into ways they can help themselves
- Stopping their “Boom” and “Bust” cycle of pain.
- Challenging beliefs about food and ways to eat and their healing properties.
Being “Painwise” with chronic pain. Last week Physio Gym physiotherapy began its first Painwise program. It started well with good attendance and with patients sharing their experiences of how pain has affected their lives and strategies to date they use to cope. Some key take home points to consider after module 1 of 4 to be presented are: 1. With chronic pain your brain can be more sensitive to a pain experience. 2. It is easier to trigger your pain as you have a lower pain threshold. 3. Chronic pain may not just be a sore back or joint it is often an entire experience affecting you in other ways like changing your sense of smell, creating a higher degree of anticipation or fear with an episode and reducing your ability to concentrate and recall memory as your brain is so busy coping with pain. The most important message is to work with the therapist to: a. Describe your pain and feelings you may have around the pain b. Learn to understand how pain affects you and some things that may seem odd about your pain may be able to be explained to you. c. Become pain smart so you can help your medical team help you by being the driver of your medical service not the receiver. Module 2 will explore A. Goal setting B. Moving with pain and into new experiences C. Managing sleep Good work everyone that came on Saturday.
