Our newly updated pain information brochure, Arthritis Pain, was launched on 7 March 2019.
In this booklet we have used current pain research that views pain as being complex and influenced by multiple factors. We provide knowledge about treatment strategies and provide a pathway for people with arthritis pain to understand their pain as being treatable/manageable, so over time they gain in confidence around the approaches that work for them.
The Arthritis Pain booklet describes best practice conservative treatment options for arthritis pain, which includes physical, emotional and social approaches to provide a pain treatment framework. These options may take time, and will need patience and persistence, while at the same time providing a practical resource to increase hope, motivation and importantly a way towards recovery and decreasing pain.
