Question and answer
encourage an individual to use self - help methods of pain control
Get some gentle exercise t’s natural to be hesitant if exercise is painful and you’re worried about doing more damage. But if you become more active gradually, it's unlikely you will cause any damage or harm. [ The pain you feel when you start gentle exercise is because the muscles and joints are getting fitter. Breathe right Concentrating on your breathing when you’re in pain can help. When the pain is intense it’s very easy to start taking shallow, rapid breaths which can make you feel dizzy, anxious or panicked. Instead, breathe slowly and deeply. This will help you to feel more in
control of the situation and will keep you relaxed and prevent any muscle tension or anxiety from worsening your pain.Stay positive Pain can make you tired, anxious, depressed and grumpy. This can make the pain even worse, making you fall into a downward spiral. Be more kind to yourself. Living with pain isn’t easy and you can be your own worst enemy by being stubborn, not pacing your activities every day and not accepting your limitations. Some people find it useful to seek help from a counsellor, psychologist or hypnotherapist to discover how to deal with their emotions in relation to their pain. Ask your GP for advice and a referral, or read this article on getting access to counselling. Distract yourself Shift your attention onto something else so the pain isn’t the only thing on your mind. Get stuck into an activity that you enjoy or find stimulating. Many hobbies, like photography, sewing or knitting, are possible even when your mobility is restricted. Share your story It can help to talk to someone else who has experienced similar pain themselves and understands what you’re going through. Pain Concern, Action on Pain, Arthritis Care and BackCare all have telephone helplines manned by people with long-term pain, who can put you in touch with local patient support groups. The healthtalkonline and youthhealthtalk websites let you watch or listen to videos of other people’s experiences of pain. ]
