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.

While contagious viruses are active year-round, winter is a prime time for norovirus, colds, influenza (flu), and other respiratory illnesses.


These infections are highly contagious, so we urge people to stay away unless their visit is absolutely essential to help reduce the spread of infection within our hospitals.

Hospitals are full of sick people, many of them frail and elderly, so bringing germs into a hospital is the worst thing you can do.  We have an active programme of infection prevention but we can’t spot visitors who really shouldn’t be here.  Please stay at home if you’re unwell to help aid the wellbeing and recovery of our patients.
