One thing we need to do is understand what causes our chronic pain, understand the problems that have caused our disability and pain. We can see how the joints are effected how the tendons work and we can begin to look at muscle groups that are effected and support our weary joints
Soft tissue problems that cause us pain let us know when something is wrong inside our bodies.
When we put all this together we begin too see what the body is going through and again we understand where the chronic pain is transmitting from down tendons ,Nerves and muscle groups
Generally I am always interested in the types of medications that we stuff down our throats, also all the contraindications that are caused by these commercial products, that cost so much, this allows us to take some control of our disabilities and understanding is power and puts a little bit more control in our hands even though our lives can be governed by them.
In the last I have also taken an interest in the treatments we need, if I do not understand something I will always ask, this makes those who are treating take a further look into the person that they are treating.
When in hospital we should always ask questions so we understand what they are going too do with us. Also we always should say thank you to those who are treating us, as very few patients or families aknowledge those who hold our treatments in their hands. We then become individuals and they can associate our problems and the person that is on the tip of the needle
All the best
