QSMC Pain Program
What Is the QSMC Pain Program?
The QSMC Pain Program is an evidence-based program designed for the management of persistent pain using a biopsychosocial approach. The program is aimed at empowering you to improve your understanding of your persistent pain, and assist you in the self-management of your recovery. It will provide you with:
A thorough, whole person assessment of your persistent pain problem.
A clear explanation of the factors which contribute to your persistent pain, which help you understand your experience fully.
An individually tailored program, specific to you, with strategies and treatments to help your progress towards your goal.
Advice on suitable exercise, activity, lifestyle, and psychological factors influencing your pain.
The program will commonly consist of six physiotherapy and psychology sessions over a three month time period. Other health care providers, including an Exercise Physiologist and Dietician may also contribute to your recovery as needed.
