Chronic pain is pain that lasts far beyond the time when normal healing should have occurred. Chronic pain often has its origin in physical causes, such as sprains or strains from injuries, inflammation from disease, damage from repetitive motion, overwork, injury to joints, or arthritis. However, chronic pain can also have a psychological or emotional component that is rarely addressed by conventional medical treatment. psychotherapists who may be able to help you with chronic pain management can be found in Central London, Burton On Trent and Bexley.
Psychotherapy can treat chronic pain caused or prolonged by stress, anxiety, and emotional trauma. It also can be used in conjunction with alternative or conventional medical therapies to help people better cope with chronic pain that has a physical cause not relieved by medical treatment. If you feel psychotherapy would help you to find a more comfortable solution for every day living then there are psychotherapists in East Dulwich, Belsize Park and Harley Street.
The following characteristics are typically present with chronic pain disorder: the pain has been present for at least six months, the pain significantly interferes with activities of daily life and the pain is associated with psychological factors that either caused it, worsened it, or prolonged it. The pain may or may not be associated with a medical condition. Psychotherapists who may be able to offer you their experience regarding chronic pain are based in West Hampstead, Bath and Hampstead.
Chronic pain is both individual and subjective. Pain that may be manageable for one person may be debilitating for another. One important aspect of psychotherapy is confirmation for the patient that the pain is real and has far-reaching side effects. Once that has been established, psychotherapy can help people cope with the daily effects of living with chronic pain.You may wish to contact psychotherapists who work in the areas of Central London, Hampstead and Derby.
Pyschotherapy can help people with chronic pain by suggesting strategies that increase the sense of control the patient has over his or her own life.
