‘Impressive – a chronic pain clinic with a difference’

This was how the judges described Osteopathy For All when they awarded them UK Osteopathic Practice Of The Year in November 2021.

Now Osteopathy For All in East Hoathly is expanding their chronic pain services by launching a new online element to their business. Over the last year they have been building a new online chronic pain support and recovery platform called Change Your Pain.

Born out of owner Pippa Cossens’ own recovery from the chronic pain condition fibromyalgia, Change Your Pain brings together all the latest in evidenced based pain knowledge, tools and techniques.

Pain recovery can be hard work so what Change Your Pain aims to do is to bring all the resources into an easy to access membership platform.  Not only this it will have a positive support community and regular live online classes to answer people’s questions to help support them on their recovery journey.

Pippa, a Registered Osteopath and SIRPA Trained Pain Recovery Coach writes ‘whilst it is really useful to see people in person in the clinic, some are unable to get to us for health, geographic or financial reasons. So we have built this platform to make chronic pain recovery accessible to more people.’

Effective pain recovery requires a biopsychosocial approach which encourages the sufferer to look at all aspects of their health story from a biomedical (physical), psychological or emotional and social or lifestyle perspective. Knowledge is key and the Change Your Pain platform has gathered this knowledge and presents it in bite-sized pieces and in different formats (videos, worksheets and live classes. It should suit all people especially if they are experiencing the brain fog/ cognitive disturbance that often accompanies pain conditions. It is packed with tools, tips and techniques to understand and change pain patterns in the body.

With one in four people in the UK experiencing a chronic pain condition and many not being able to access a patient-centred approach to their recovery, Osteopathy For All feels launching now is essential. Stress and trauma only adds to people’s pain and after a difficult few years, due to the pandemic and cost of living situation, there is an expectation to see the number of people experiencing persistent pain to rise.  Osteopathy For All hopes this new service will help people not have to experience pain for any longer than is necessary.

If you wish to have an individual consultation about your pain all the osteopaths at Osteopath For All are able to help you. www.osteopathyforall.co.uk  If you are interested in finding out more about the new online platform please visit  www.changeyourpain.co.uk
