Airing Pain 24: Exercise and Managing Pain

How swim­ming can help man­age pain, and a Q&A ses­sion with phys­io­ther­a­pist Paul Cameron.

This pro­gramme was fund­ed by Pain Con­cern’s sup­port­ers and friends, and an edu­ca­tion­al grant from Grünenthal.

Paul Evans takes the plunge with Daphne Wood of Pain and Able to find out more about how swim­ming com­bined with the Alexan­der Tech­nique can help peo­ple with per­sis­tent pain con­di­tions. Phys­io­ther­a­pist and Pain Con­cern expert advi­sor Paul Cameron answers lis­ten­ers’ ques­tions on issues from dehy­drat­ed spinal discs to los­ing weight to reduce pain.

Issues cov­ered in this pro­gramme include: Exer­cise, swim­ming, the Alexan­der tech­nique, aware­ness of habit, dehy­drat­ed spinal disc, weight loss, joint pain, cat­a­strophis­ing, flare-up, osteoarthri­tis and breath­ing technique.
