In Search of Relief:Self Care Strategies for Chronic Pain

In Search of Relief:Self Care Strategies for Chronic Pain

Chronic pain differs from acute pain in origin and manifestations and is often accompanied by depression and anxiety. There are considerable challenges for both the client and counsellor in dealing with the issues raised by chronic pain. This project examines theories of chronic pain, describes current research into the use of cognitive behavioural therapy, and highlights current research into the use of mindfulness-based and acceptance-based cognitive behavioural therapies by means of a comprehensive literature review. The project also involves producing psycho-educational material in the form of a proposed manual for clients to be used prior to, or concurrently with, formal therapy. Applicable strategies include breathing, mindfulness and meditation techniques, sleep hygiene and nutritional guidance, suggestions for exercise, emotion regulation techniques, and assertive communication. Implementation of these preliminary strategies will raise awareness, facilitate skill development and enhance self-management in order to minimize the impact of pain on the client’s life and family, improve the therapeutic experience, and alleviate the burden on society and the health care system.

The self management of chronic conditions

The self management of chronic conditions

A patient who is self managing a chronic condition is actively involved in the prevention, understanding and regulation of his symptoms by means of his behavior and choices. The most diffused self management theories and strategies are presented, with an accent on those that can be relevant for supporting solutions in Healthcare HCI. The user centered design process is explained by making the example of a project for the development of tools supporting the self management of stroke, congestive heart failure and chronic pain. Paper prototypes are illustrated throughout the work.

Vaginal and Cervical Self-Stimulation

Vaginal and Cervical Self-Stimulation

Vaginal self-stimulation (VS-S) and cervical self-stimulation (CS-S) were studied to determine the effect on: chronic pain intensity (CPI), pain detection threshold (PDT), and pain tolerance threshold (PTT). There were differences in the response to self-stimulation based on the type of pain, somatic or visceral. The effect of both VS-S and CS-S outlasted stimulation. The results must be viewed cautiously based on the small sample size. This is the first human study to demonstrate a difference in the effect of neurostimulation on analgesia and pain thresholds. This study indicates that not all chronic pain, even when located in the same area of the body, is the same. It is apparent that more research is needed to differentiate the effect of stimulation-produced analgesia on various types of chronic pain.

Management of chronic pain in a primary care

Management of chronic pain in a primary care

Though the experience of living with HIV and AIDS is unique to each individual, a common factor is dealing with the chronic pain associated with the condition. HIV and AIDS patients may experience pain in more than one area simultaneously; the pain may be caused by the disease itself or the therapies used to treat the disease. The most frequent reason for HIV and AIDS patients seeking health care in a primary health care clinic is pain. The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of chronic pain management for HIV and AIDS patients in a primary health care clinic in Tshwane District. The design was a quantitative survey with a qualitative exploratory component. The data-gathering method was self-report using a semi-structured interview format and observation using a checklist. Data analysis was done with descriptive statistics and content analysis using open coding. The study revealed that patients’ pain was not effectively assessed, though more than 95% of the AIDS patients using the primary health clinic experienced moderate to severe pain.
