Pain Education and Rehabilitation


At Be Inspired Group we understand the complexities of pain and the devastating impact that persistent pain can have on your independence, function, and quality of life. We are also aware that it can be difficult accessing good pain management services and finding someone who will take the time to listen, understand your concerns and situation and will provide education and support in a way that is meaningful for you.

Our pain education and rehabilitation service is comprehensive, evidence-based and grounded in modern pain science. It is delivered by an experienced Occupational Therapist (OT) trained in the latest pain science and management techniques. Our approach is tailored to meet your specific needs and situation. We collaborate closely with you, offering the necessary support, education, and strategies to empower you to guide your own care and recovery. Our goal is to assist you in taking proactive steps toward living the life you desire, rather than allowing pain to control or limit you.

OTs are trained in using a holistic, client-centered approach, that considers various aspects of the individual, their daily activities and environmental factors. This broad expertise is especially beneficial in pain management given the complex nature of pain and the multitude of factors that contribute to pain. The factors that affect pain and wellbeing are broad and can include: daily activities, routine, movement, other health issues, work, thoughts, beliefs, emotions, stress, anxiety, sleep, behaviours, and social, cultural and environmental influences.

Our OT is experienced in coaching individuals to not only understand their pain system better, but to incorporate this understanding into their daily lives and make changes that are meaningful for them. As an accredited mental health OT, she is skilled in guiding people through the challenges and the psychological and behaviour changes needed to enhance independence and quality of life.

The Process 

 

  1. Comprehensive Assessment – We will start by conducting an assessment to understand your situation and specific pain and health conditions.  This will include the impact pain has on your function and daily life, and will look at the physical, social, cognitive, emotional, and environmental factors which may be impacting your pain and quality of life.  We want to hear your story to better understand your needs and learn about what you have already tried, your strengths and what is important to you.
  2. Establish an individualised therapy plan – We will work with you to clarify your priorities and goals, ascertain what you are ready for and discuss the type of therapy approaches that are most likely to support your needs.  Establishing a practical and realistic goal, along with a tailored therapy program, will serve as a guide for your pain management journey and provide a baseline for reviewing progress.
  3. Implementation of Plan – We will support you to put your personalised pain management plan into action, which will include a range of interventions and strategies within therapy sessions and outside of therapy. Throughout this process, we will aim to ensure that you feel supported and empowered through the process.
  4. Review progress and adapt the plan as needed –  We will continue to monitor progress and ensure that the plan is adapted as needed to suit your changing needs and what is working for you.
