Chronic Pain Management: HELP Program
Sports & Spinal are proud to announce we now offer The HELP Program for treating Persistent Pain which is unique to the Sunshine Coast.
HOPE & EMPOWERMENT through LEARNING and PERSISTENCE‘.
The point of difference is that the program aims to treat pain by using the latest evidence based neuroscience techniques known Explain Pain Program (EPP) and if appropriate Graded Motor Imagery (GMI) Program. This is an intense 8 week program conducted by a GMI and EPP-trained Physiotherapist who works through patient-specific pain education and then a sequential 3 stage series of brain retraining tasks that are specific to the area of pain.
The HELP program also values the importance of a biopsychosocial approach. Consistent with evidence based practice; the HELP program offers a supportive combination of:
• Clinical Psychology
• Occupational Therapy
• Pain & Rehabilitation Specialist Medicine
This provides patients with the best possible opportunity of a positive outcome by increasing functional gains and reducing pain.
If you have pain that results from Central Sensitisation, Neuropathic Pain, Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), or any Chronic Pain where you have exhausted normal avenues for treatment, this program is for you!
