Pain Does Not Always Indicate Injury [Article]

These days it is understood that for most chronic pain, ongoing nociceptive triggers are rare. Instead, therapists have to treat a much more complex mix of central sensitisation, anxiety and fear of pain. This involves having a thorough knowledge of pain neuroscience as well as biopsychosocially-driven pain management strategies. This article will allow you to start by understanding your patient before educating them to understand their pain and then to deliver a graded cognition-targeted exercise therapy plan to free your patient from their fear and limitations of chronic pain.
