Meet Our Team Of Chronic Pain Psychiatrists

Overview

The role of physiotherapy in chronic pain management is difficult to define. Treatment is based on the bio–psycho–social model: part of the clinician's skill is determining which parts of the bio–psycho–social 'equation' influence the patient's pain. Furthermore, 3 important physiotherapy treatments are used: education, patient empowerment, and exercise promotion. Patients are often afraid of exercise because of a bad experience in the past or because they believe it will cause more harm, but exercise can be related to activities of daily living, such as getting up in the morning. Patients should be counseled not to press through pain as this will result in 'wind up' and increased pain. Goal-setting and phased activities are described. Desensitization and graded motor imagery are two more specific or individual treatments that are used. Cadabams has physiotherapists skilled in their field and practice of physiotherapy for chronic pain in Bangalore and delivering the best across the nation.
