From acute to chronic: The interdisciplinary treatment of pain
Acute pain is often a warning sign and is a symptom of an underlying illness. Whereas chronic pain has lost its guiding and warning function and has become its own independent entity. The consequence which follows is a kind of pain memory. According to the definition of the “International Society for the Study of Pain (IASP) in 1986, acute or chronic pain can develop even without a direct organic cause or tissue damage for example. Chronic pain itself can, therefore, be its own independent illness.
How can Multimodal Therapy help?
Multimodal pain therapy treats various forms of chronic and acute pain forms. These include headaches, backaches or other pain of the musculoskeletal system such as the so called phantom pain. A possible process looks like this:
- First consultation as an in-patient with a pain therapist in The BetaGenese Klinik.
- Psychosomatic examination
- Neurological examination
- Functional and structural analysis of the musculoskeletal system
- Bio feedback diagnosis
- Craniosacral diagnosis
- Preparation of treatment plan
Based on the above and if needed, we bring in other medical experts and develop a joint treatment plan which is tailor-made according to your pain and which can be carried out in a sustainable way.
Specialists from The Beta Klinik and The BetaGenese Klinik work together in interdisciplinary teams comprised of pain therapists, neurologists, anaesthetists, sports doctors, physiotherapists and even orthopaedists and neurosurgeons. Together, using multimodal pain therapies, they get a grip on the pain.
Here the cause of the pain is looked for, identified and an individual, comprehensive holistic treatment plan developed to treat the symptoms. In intensive consultation and on the basis of extensive examinations, the experienced pain therapists get to the cause of the pain and develop a treatment plan which treats both the pain and the pain memory at the same time. Patients get their quality of life back bit by bit.
