Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain Talk

Today I was asked to speak at Nambour Base Hospital’s physiotherapy department about the Lightning Process and its approach to Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain.

Some chronic pain conditions are seen as a real pain to health practitioners as they seem remarkably unresponsive to treatment.

Being an outpatient programme I made an assumption that their approach would be very much based around a physical exercise programme. I wasn’t sure therefore how they would respond to the Lightning Process approach of focusing on more on the neurological re-training element combined with activity.

No tomatoes were thrown and they seem to have a very up-to-date approach! It was nice to talk to a group who understood the role the brain plays in pain and that neurological retraining wasn’t suggesting it was ‘all in the head’.

Hi to all the staff who sat through me rabbitting on. Hopefully it wasn’t too painful for you.

Stay tuned for a more in depth piece about the Lightning Process approach to chronic pain.
