Did you know that physiotherapists can help you treat your chronic pain?

Typically, when people have been having pain for a long period of time, their first thought isn’t usually physiotherapy. Most people are surprised to know that physiotherapists can actually have a huge influence on your pain levels and help you manage your pain.

What is chronic pain?

It has been shown that up to 15-20% of Canadians suffer from chronic pain that persists for weeks, months or years. While pain often starts because of an injury or illness and gets better with time, in some cases, pain persists and it can make it harder to move around and do your daily activities. Even simple things like brushing your teeth and getting dressed can be excruciatingly painful.

How does chronic pain happen?

When people have chronic pain, it is thought that their nervous system gets rewired so that things that are usually not painful (like brushing your teeth or getting dressed) will begin to send pain signals to the brain. This process is referred to as “central sensitization”.

How can physiotherapy help me?

Physiotherapists have the training and experience to help assess how pain influences your daily activities and ability to move around. In turn, physiotherapists can help you re-learn how to perform your daily activities to help the body get over these pain signals. We can also help create a specialized exercise program, relaxation and breathing techniques to help calm the over-active nervous system and use specialized treatment modalities to treat your chronic pain.
