Pain management consultation

Just like in conventional occupational therapy care, we start by evaluating the occupational performance of the individual. However, special attention is given to the patient's pain, its management, the treatments received so far, as well as past and future investigations.

The interventions are designed to maximize the functionality and autonomy of the person in their daily activities. Nevertheless, the modalities and type of care vary, depending on the specific needs of each individual.

Treatment Modalities:

  • Education:

    • Principles of joint protection.

    • Load handling techniques.

    • Methods of energy conservation and management.

    • Active and passive pain management strategies.

    • Understanding the factors influencing pain.

    • Exploration of the mechanisms of pain.

    • Analysis of the pain cycle and how to reverse it.

    • Learning to live with persistent pain.

    • Adapting activities to reduce the impact of pain.

    • Modifying the environment to facilitate activities.

    • Managing the grieving of certain lost roles and activities.

  • Use of an Occupational Schedule: Structuring the daily routine to
    balance activities and rest.

  • Pain Diary: Daily tracking of pain levels for better management.

  • Meaningful Activities: Engagement in rewarding and motivating tasks.

  • Graduated Activities: Gradual increase in the intensity and duration of activities.

  • Progressive Reactivation: Gentle resumption of professional and personal activities.

It is important to note that some recommendations may include exploring complementary modalities offered by other health professionals.

Our goal is to provide holistic and personalized support, focused on the well-being and autonomy of the patient, while taking into account their specific condition.
