Airing Pain 6: Pacing and Arthritis

How pacing can help people with pain regain control, plus arthritis myth-busting, the future of pain management in the UK and a Q&A session on pain relief

Pacing is the thing that makes the most difference to his patients’ lives, says David Laird, Consultant in Anaesthesia and Pain Management in County Durham. We hear about how pacing allows people to build up slowly to doing more, and Pete Moore describes getting his life back on track and becoming a patient expert on pain management.

Also in the programme: Dr David Walsh provides information about the different forms of arthritis and the treatments available and Dr Paul Johnson and Nia Taylor set out some of the opportunities and challenges facing pain services over the next few years. In our Q&A session, specialist nurse Ruth Day answers your questions on painkillers.

Issues covered in this programme include: Arthritis, pacing, misconceptions, painkillers, back pain, educating health professionals, paracetamol, codeine, TENS, flare-up, side effects, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, joint pain, pain service cuts, policy and economics.
