Toast of Surrey Business Awards

At SpeToast of Surrey Awardscialist Pain Physio Clinics, we are delighted to be shortlisted for Toast of Surrey Business Awards in the Mental Health & Wellbeing category. This is great news because it creates an opportunity to tell Surrey businesses about the problem of pain — the number one global health burden — and what we can do about it.

Many businesses suffer the financial and social consequences of employees being on sick leave for painful problems; back pain, neck pain, repetitive strain injury, injuries sustained at work etc. I believe that understanding pain and communicating about it in the right way leads to return to work for many, instead of the common scenario when the employee and employer reach loggerheads. I welcome the opportunity to show businesses how to deal with these problems effectively and efficiently, which is ultimately by looking after the employee’s welfare and wellbeing from the point that they report pain or injury.

Beyond the biomedical model of pain – an interview with Richmond Stace

physiospotRecently I was interviewed by Rachael from Physiopedia and Physiospot. We discussed some of the areas I feel are important in tackling the problem of pain, in particular chronic pain.

Click here for the interview

Primarily the topic focus was the psychosocial aspects of pain, an area that has provoked increasing interest. The word is often used but I find in practice that the social or societal influences upon pain are rarely included in a treatment programme. The most obvious example is the way in which a couple live and interact and how this impacts upon pain. Culture and gender both play a significant role in how pain is perceived, experienced and treated.

Of course the psychosocial elements are not in isolation to the physical and in fact I would argue that they are as biological as movement or nociception. All our experiences are constructed by the brain and involve neuronal activity driven by chemicals.

The understanding of pain sciences has moved on dramatically over the past 5-10 years but sadly the management trails behind, held back by old fashioned thinking and views based on out-dated thinking. We have an obligation to reconceptualise the way we deal with pain because the information exists and there are vast numbers of people who need to know that they can both control and change their pain.

Working with consultants & GPs for better care

Dimensions of pain: Affective, Sensory, Emotional

Our aims for patients are to ease their pain, increase their activity levels and significantly improve their quality of life with the development of heathy habits. These aims are achieved with comprehensive treatment programmes that tackle the pain source(s) and the influencing factors.

Specialist Pain Physio Clinics – London & Surrey

Teaming with the referring consultant or GP means that the care and treatment is multidimensional, just as the pain experience is multidimensional. We aim to work closely with consultants and other healthcare professionals who refer to the clinic or when we refer for concurrent input, for example psychology. GPs are often key players in the co-ordination of the relevant services, and indeed we communicate regularly to ensure that the information is up-to-date.

Specialising in pain means that we work closely with a range of specialists including those in orthopaedics (e.g. sports injuries, repetitive strain injury, tendinopathy, arthritis, back pain), rheumatology (e.g. arthritis, osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia), neurology (e.g. migraines, headaches, back and neck pain, dystonia), gynaecology (e.g. pelvic pain, back pain), gastroenterology (e.g. IBS) and pain medicine (a range of painful conditions often including complex regional pain syndrome, back and neck pain).

We are always keen to develop effective working relationships with specialists and GPs, seeking to create an avenue for struggling patients. If you are interested in this, lunchtime seminars and other training events, please do make contact by emailing [email protected]

* Our clinics are based in Harley Street, Chelsea, Temple and New Malden
