Pain therapy can be developed from different viewpoints and approaches; our mission is to make a global interpretation of the patient’s pain, analyse it as a physical alarm bell for a general process and as a result, tackle the pain from different perspectives and with the aid of different elements. Of all the therapeutic alternatives, those we have the greatest confidence in are:
Guided exercise programmes or programmes with specific indications
Exercise stimulates the release of the body’s natural analgesics, known as endorphins. It favours flexibility, strength and resistance and helps reduce stress. And exercise can also strengthen little-used or weakened muscles and help replace the work of an overused muscle which is causing pain.
In this section, we include some alternative therapies such as Sup-terapia®
Minor and major analgesics
If strictly necessary, analgesics may be used temporarily in order to be able to introduce other complementary therapies.
Specific rehabilitation therapies
Such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy and assorted massages to reduce pain and increase functionality. Rehabilitation therapy is an important part of early treatment against pain and is usually combined with other treatments, such as medicines, neuromuscular bandage, magnet therapy, etc.
Cognitive behavioural therapy
Chronic pain follows a bio-psychosocial model which means that not only physical, but also psychological elements are involved. Behavioural and cognitive therapies take these factors into account to help patients learn new practices and strategies to assimilate chronic pain, such as relaxation techniques and visualisation exercises.
