Pain Management

Pain Management

Chronic pain can be debilitating and tiresome for patients. The hand and upper limb are areas of the body that have a higher risk of developing pain conditions following injury or trauma. Pain conditions, such as Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome, can cause excessive and persistent pain in an area of the body that significantly impacts on function.

Pain conditions are often characterised by:

  • Excessive and persistent pain, even when no structural injury is present
  • Localised or extreme swelling
  • Temperature differences in the affected area
  • Altered autonomic body responses – such as excessive hair growth, increased or reduced sweating, etc.
  • Poor or no range of motion
  • Altered nerve and tactile responses – causing some textures to feel different, uncomfortable or painful

Therapists at Geelong Hand Therapy have additional training in Chronic Pain management, and base their therapy techniques off the latest evidence around the treatment of pain conditions. They use a variety of therapy strategies to combat the different factors that contribute to chronic pain.
