At Sevenoaks Medical Centre, the Pain Management Team provides expert advice and treatment for patients with chronic pain, to alleviate their suffering. While pain management does not eliminate the patient’s pain, it will allow them to regain control and enhance their quality of life.
The nature and severity of a patient’s pain will determine the techniques used to manage their condition. In some cases, a patient can often experience more than one type of pain. This will require a combined approach, including techniques such as activity pacing, breathing relaxation, muscle relaxation, providing strategies to combat anxiety and to overcome negative thinking as a result of the pain.
Pain management provides patients with the tools to take control of the pain they are experiencing and their life. With the help of the Pain Management Team at Sevenoaks Medical Centre, patients can find their own route to a life that does not revolve around the disability or distress that suffering from chronic pain can cause.
