When I first signed up to the course, I really didn't think it would help in any way. I was desperate and ready to try anything, and for £60, it was worth a try. My mindset has been thoroughly changed. There were some key takeaways for me, such as having a positive outlook, that the pain is not (usually) related to damage, to breathe and relax and that I really do need to pace. Putting all of these things into action has changed my life. I am sad this course has come to an end, but so glad I ended up trying it.
What to expect on the course
The course covers all the elements of an intensive Pain Management Programme (PMP). You'll be led through 24-steps comprising of pre-recorded videos, exercises and assignments to practise in your own time.
We recommend you aim to complete the course in a month, but you can complete it at your own pace, taking breaks when you need to. There are also set break-points within the course to help you pace yourself.
By the end of the course you will have gained knowledge and practical skills to foster over the long-term, which help you to let go of the fear of pain and see there are ways and means to live a normal life again.
You’ll meet some of the pain-medicine experts who will be guiding and supporting you, and learn about the mechanics of pain and the way we think about pain. We assess how pain is affecting different areas of your life.
relaxation and meditation
Explore and practice relaxation and meditation techniques to reduce pain. Learn about the relationship between tension and pain. Improve your approach to pain recovery activities such as sleep.
Learn to understand your pain and fear it less. Re-examine your thoughts about pain and the situations they occur in. Explore ways to change unhelpful thinking to change your perception of pain and change your life.
We introduce a simple stretching programme that helps manage persistent pain. Understand the physical effects and multiple benefits of stretching and learn good techniques and simple exercises that improve body condition.
Measuring and Assessing
Your initial pain assessment also enables you to measure progress, see what is most effective and find the approach to pain management that works best for you. An optional confidential journal helps you keep a private record of your struggles and achievements with pain management.
