Pain treatments: Physical therapies... Pain is commonly associated with an initial reluctance or an inability to perform normal daily activities which in the early stages of an acutely painful condition assists recovery. The ‘RICE’ system of Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation is widely recommended, but early mobilization is increasingly promoted to assist recovery. Immobility and bedrest historically was advocated for many conditions, but the benefits of early and continued physical rehabilitation helps to regain function, to reduce pain, and to speed recovery. In chronic pain there has often been a prolonged period of inactivity or a reduction of normal function. This causes additional pain due to muscular, tendinous and joint related symptoms which increase the pain ‘load’ and restrict recovery. The use of techniques of physiotherapy, chiropractic or osteopathic care can assist mobility, reduce the additional pain activity, allow a quicker return of function and therefore further reduce pain. Increased activity also allows more freedom, reduces anxiety and depression, allows people to have additional interests and distractions so helping them to be less focussed on their symptoms and so improve rehabilitation. Specific and directed exercises may be recommended to target your pain specifically.
