Occupational therapy - pain management
What we do
Occupational Therapists work with individuals to help them find the most effective ways to manage their pain and to address the impact pain has on their day-to-day activities and roles within their life. This can be achieved by learning how to use pacing, goal setting and relaxation techniques to address difficulties in the following areas:
- Inconsistent activity levels
- Leisure and social activities
- Work issues
- Sleep problems
- Personal and domestic activities
The Occupational Therapists work as part of a team of professionals, experienced and skilled in teaching individuals how to adopt a holistic self-management approach to their pain problem.
Where we are
We are based in the multi-disciplinary pain clinic within the out-patient department at York Hospital.
We offer occupational therapy intervention both an individual basis and within a group environment in the pain management programmes.
