The Living Well with Pain blog offers insights into a person's understanding of their pain and how they manage their condition.
In this blog Tina explores her understanding of her condition. She discusses how the initial attepts to "explain pain" did not take full account of her whole experience and she has sought models that are closer to explaining her truth.
In the next blog, Tina shares her thoughts on how to make the most of an episode of physiotherapy. This blog has been highly commended by physiotherapists and Tina may condense it down to key messages for a leaflet. It is hoped that a leaflet could be shared with patients attending physiotherapy, so they know what to expect when engaging in rehabilitation for a long term condition.
In this blog, Tina describes the approach her physiotherapist used to help her reduce the suffering she experienced and live well along side her pain. She describes the aspects of her consultations with her physiotherapist and the aspects of cognitive functional therapy that supported her to reduce her symptoms and move forward.
Tina updates her blog regularly, so check in or follow her on Twitter @LivingWellPain
