Event description

Description

Have you been suffering with a long-term pain problem? Already tried lots of different medical treatments that haven't been successful? Then why not come along to a talk on a new approach to chronic pain.

Matt Kinal a Specialist Pain Physiotherapist, explains how pain is often activated by adaptive changes in our brain and central nervous system, rather than a structural problem. These adaptations are usually triggered by the emotional impact life is having on us and the stress this creates. These changes are not detected on an x-ray or an MRI scan, which is why people are left unsure of the cause of their pain. By learning what is triggering the adaptations it is often possible to learn how to reverse them and improve pain.

Matt will present a novel treatment approach, which helps people to understand the emotional triggers for their pain and provides techniques to express these emotions in order to reduce the pain. This approach is called the Stress Illness Recovery Programme (SIRPA). During the talk Matt will explain key elements of this approach and provide useful information on how you can begin reducing your pain. He will also present case studies of people who have succesfully recovered from chronic pain. The approach can be useful for lots of different conditions including chronic lower back and pelvic pain, fibromyalgia, repetitive strain injuries, plantar fasciitis and post stroke neuropathic pain.

By attending this talk it will also entitle you to a discount of £15 off an initial assessment at the Bristol Pain Relief Centre.
