Empowering patients suffering with acute and chronic pain.
Our Vision is..
To empower patients in the Helderberg area, suffering with acute and chronic pain, with the necessary tools and knowledge to return to a fulfilled life, based on the latest research in the understanding of pain.
To facilitate modern pain science interventions among all health-care providers in the Helderberg area.
A little bit about pain..
Pain is appropriate when there is an acute injury to protect damaged tissues, but once they have healed, it is no longer an appropriate response and it affects your life in many ways.
When pain becomes persistent, we need to explore the reasons for this andand ways to intervene. Sometimes people with persistent pain have ideas and behaviours, which are unhelpful for the resolution of his / her problem in the long term.
This intervention program has been developed using the latest research in the understanding of pain, using scientific recognised outcome measures.
It is not always necessarily a hands-on intervention when it comes to chronic or persistent pain. The purpose is then not to control or manage pain, but to do more of the things that are important to you, sometimes with pain, to return to a meaningful and fulfilled life.
The purpose is to do more of the things that are important to you and return to a meaningful and fulfilled life.
