Against chronic pain will also help exercise
Non-pharmacological pain therapies have not been in Finland too much into the background, says General Practice, Professor Pekka Mäntyselkä the University of Eastern Finland.
This is an important issue for public health, because chronic pain is common. Pine Spine found that 35 per cent of the adult population suffer from chronic, less than three months of intensive pain. In addition, pain is a common cause of terveyskeskuskäynnille.
Last December, released the first primarily related to the treatment of pain Current Care guideline. Pine spine, the purpose is to remind the non-pharmacological treatments for pain are often tackling efficient and effective and that they should also be used whenever it is possible.
I emphasize, however, that often medical treatment is required at the same time with the humane treatment. Message, therefore, is not that drugs no longer be used, but the fact that both are needed.However, pine Dorsal view, the problem is that pain patients always remembered recommend pharmacological treatments.
Hoitosysteemimme favors too many quick fixes. Writing the recipe is pretty nimble thing compared to the activation of the patient should think about, the implementation of the multi-professional treatment by a physiotherapist or even the use of their professional skills.
In some cases, drugs may be tall spine, according to impose too much, too long or too lightly. Therefore, the Current Care guideline contains information about the safe use of addictive opioids and NSAIDs are strong.For example, anti-inflammatory drugs does not benefit from the long-running pain, acute pain, but they are needed. Similarly, a particular trend is in that direction that, especially in larger cities opioid prescribing practices can be a bit höltynyt. Repeating certain principles need to.
However, the back, the pine is also an indication that the pharmacological treatments have begun to pay attention to better health care. A good example of a professor raises the Kuopio city to open a direct reception physiotherapist musculoskeletal symptoms sufferers.Recently, there have been more and more research to enhance the pain-pharmacological therapies, Mäntyselkä says. The strongest evidence is the fact that the muscle strength to maintain and improve training to help many supporting and related musculoskeletal diseases in pain.In some cases, nerve electrostimulation can help. There has been some evidence that acupuncture is beneficial in pain-related polvinivelrikkoon.
It is also studied cognitive-behavioral therapy, which seeks to influence related to pain perception and behavior.Pharmacological treatments, such as therapy produce, is not very readily available, so it is a limiting factor.
