Pain Management at Evolving Minds

Pain serves as a crucial signal, alerting us to injuries like a sprained wrist or a cut on the leg. However, chronic pain often presents a more intricate challenge, persisting for months or even beyond the typical healing period.  It is often associated with workplace injuries.

In Australia, around 1 in 5 individuals aged 45 and over report chronic pain, disrupting daily life and causing distress. These people have been found to be more susceptible to mental health conditions like depression, anxiety, and sleep disturbances.

 

Psychological intervention is crucial as it focuses on improving physical, emotional, social, and occupational functioning, by helping develop strategies to cope.

Psychological therapies such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) have proven effective in enhancing quality of life, adjusting thought processes, and helping individuals adapt.

It's important to acknowledge feelings of anger, frustration, and loss are normal. At Evolving Minds Counselling, we're here to help you understand and manage the thoughts, emotions, and behaviours associated with chronic pain so you can cope more effectively.
