Rethinking Chronic Pain

A recent article written for the Australian Natural Therapies Association magazine discussing as a practitioner how to approach pain from a holistic perspective.

We have all felt pain at some time in our lives and as health care professionals many of us are treating patients with persistent pain in our clinics. In acute pain, once the injury or trauma heals, the pain stops. But chronic pain is something different. Chronic pain persists and represents a global health epidemic, frequently exacerbated by untreated or poorly treated pain. Current care relies on a biomedical model of pain, which reduces pain to neurophysiology alone without seeing the complex social and emotional context of pain.
