At Freeclaim Solicitors we have experienced solicitors who have many yearsí experience recognising and dealing with chronic pain after an accident.

Chronic pain is described as a long-term persistent pain, usually lasting several months or longer. It is often brought on as a result of an injury sustained in an accident, but the pain can continue a long time after the initial injury has healed.

At Freeclaim Solicitors we understand the devastating effects it can have on a personís quality of life, making it difficult for them to undertake simple daily activities. We believe itís important that people with chronic pain get access to the most suitable treatments to improve their lives as quickly as possible.

When you are experiencing chronic pain, tracking your pain can help doctors to understand the pain youíre feeling and help to put together a treatment plan. Completing a daily dairy to log any activities you have undertaken, as well as the level of pain you have felt, will indicate how you are living and coping with your chronic pain.

Treatments of chronic pain aim to reduce the pain youíre feeling, as well as improve your coping strategies of dealing with the pain. This should help to increase and improve your daily functioning. Chronic pain is often treated by a tailored approach which may include medication, counselling and physical therapy, or in some extreme circumstances surgery.

  • Medication

Medication can be taken to help relieve the feelings of chronic pain, but often do not treat the pain itself. Normally, your doctor will prescribe you with tablets. These are usually first administered at a lower dose of pain killer, which can then be changed or increased as necessary. Alongside painkillers, creams, gels and sprays can be used directly on your skin to help relieve some of the pain. In some circumstances, injections may be used to help with chronic pain. These can include epidural steroid injections, nerve block injections and trigger point injections.

  • Counselling

Chronic pain does not only affect the body, it can also have an emotional impact. This is where specialist counselling can help. Reducing stress levels, as well as feelings of depression, frustration and anxiety can help. These kinds of feelings can increase your bodyís sensitivity to pain, so managing and reducing them can improve your condition.

  • Pain management programme

Joining a pain management programme can also be beneficial to people who are living with chronic pain. They aim to teach you ways of dealing with your pain in day to day life and situations. These programmes are usually more geared towards coping with the feelings of pain, rather than treating it.

  • Physiotherapy

Introducing physical therapy into your treatment can help with movement of the affected area and help you to undertake day to day tasks. Physical therapy can also help with recovery from an injury which may be the cause of your ongoing discomfort.

  • Surgery

Surgery for chronic pain is usually the last resort when other treatments have been unsuccessful. Surgery can provide pain relief, but can also cause damage to other areas and make some people less sensitive to such things as touch or temperature changes. Pain control systems can be inserted into the body which can block or numb the pain by using medicine, electric currents, heat or chemicals.

It is important that if you are living with chronic pain, you have access to specialist medical experts who truly understand what you are going through and can implement the best treatment plans for you.
