Pacing For Pain


Chronic pain is very common. Half of all adults suffer from either persistent (long term) or recurrent (repeated) pain of some kind. These are both chronic pain. This can vary from the severely disabling pain of cancer or arthritis to the mild pain of an old injury to a joint or ligament. Doctors can diagnose some pains and the treatments are clear. But many pains have no diagnosis and no treatment. This includes most back and neck pain, migraines, headaches and many pain problems without a diagnosis such as much abdominal pain.
Pacing is a technique of pain management which allows people to start an activity or increase the amount of an activity they can perform without suffering a significant increase in their pain.
The author has worked with a pain management team for over ten years and seen over a thousand patient suffering from chronic pain problems. Amongst many problems they have indicated is the difficulty of managing activities, doing things.
Pacing For Pain sets out a clear analysis of the problems of pain in activity and a plan for increasing ability over time and regaining control over an aspect of life which is very important.
