The topic of flare up is often treated on its own, but the best way to manage a flare up is to avoid it in the first place.
It means that when we look at flare ups, we need to do some detective work about what affects pain and how we react to it.
Managing a flare up is both proactive so that we make it less likely and reactive, so that we reduce suffering and recover as quickly as possible.
In this session we’ll look at changing our reaction to pain at a ‘small’ level and we’ll also look at making a flare up plan.
Chronic Pain Ireland has for many years offered self-management training for all living with chronic pain and are partners with the Pain Association Scotland, who (having pioneered the development and delivery of self-management training) have run community programmes for over 20 years. Both CPI and PAS share mutual aims of helping to improve the quality of life for all living with chronic pain. The focus of these interactive workshops is therefore on introducing people to, and quickly building, self-management skills, thereby creating practical, positive change leading to an improved quality of life and well-being.
