Clinical Psychologist

In pain teams Clinical Psychologists work with people who have tried hard to get rid of their pain but find it continues to affect them.  Their focus is on helping people manage the impact of pain on their quality of life and emotional wellbeing. They will have an Undergraduate Degree in Psychology and a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology.

When people have become caught up trying to control pain for a long time they often make significant compromises to the way they live: many people give up things that were important to them or neglect certain aspects of their life. As the pain continues, not only are they left frustrated that their efforts have failed, but their life may also have become restricted and empty.

Clinical Psychologists help people develop skills to transform their life into one that is full and meaningful again, in spite of pain. They can help people change their relationship with their pain so that they can get back to leading a more fulfilled life and doing what they were previously able to do.

Pain Consultant

A Pain Consultant is a medically qualified doctor with specialist training in long-term pain management. They have in-depth knowledge of the variety and forms of pain and its physiology. They can assess patients with complex pain problems, diagnose painful conditions and have the skills to perform a range of pain procedures. They also play a pivotal role in coordinating additional care such as physiotherapy and rehabilitation programs to ensure any treatment plan is as effective as possible.

There are a number of different ways in which your Pain Consultant can help you to manage your pain. While it’s not always possible to completely eliminate pain, you will be advised on specific treatment and pain management plans that can help you regain control and enhance your quality of life. Any medication or injections will aim to moderate your pain to a point where you can be more active.

The range of treatments that may be considered includes:

  • Medication
  • Injections (depending on location of pain and likelihood of response)
  • TENS
  • Specialist pain management physiotherapy
  • Pain Management Psychology
  • Pain Management Programme

Senior physiotherapists specialise in disorders of the musculoskeletal system. They have developed the skills required to design your exercise programme, offer appropriate manual therapy and in some cases, electrotherapy or acupuncture may be offered.
