Pain management programmes

‘Self-management’ doesn’t mean being abandoned to ‘get on with it’ alone. Support can come from healthcare professionals, family, friends, voluntary organisations or support groups.

If pain is having a big impact, pain management programmes can help people to get their lives back on track. This involves focusing on what’s most important in life – this could be relationships, activities, work – and learning how to be more involved in them without flaring-up the pain.

Top tip: control the pain by finding your baseline. That’s a level of activity you know you can do without flaring-up the pain. From there you can build up slowly.

Find out more: listen to participants and healthcare professionals on the Glasgow Pain Management Programme sharing their experiences on our Airing Pain radio programme.
