Kill All Pain!

A Clinical Pearl by Adriaan Louw, PT, PhD, CSMT

There is a wonderful article from Medbridge (medbridge.com) regarding a refreshing pain management strategy. “We know now: pain is a lot more complex and warrants a more comprehensive approach to make meaningful changes in our patients.”

“The day I found out that pain is a normal biological process aimed to protect us, it set me free. Pain is normal. Without the ability to experience pain, you wouldn’t survive very long. Now I feel much less pressure to “kill all pain” in my clinical practice. I became interested in the issues that keep the normal pain going longer than it biologically should, in coping skills and in teaching people that pain is a normal human experience. Guess what? My patients started having epiphanies and seeing pain as an informant rather than an enemy.”
