To our patients, the pain they experience is very real! However, for many it is difficult to express the root causes that are creating signs of pain. Due to general misunderstanding of pain, sometimes patients feel frustrated as they try to express what they are feeling to their friends, family and practitioners. Yet, as our friends at the Canadian Chiropractic Association remind us, its “It’s important to remember, that our loved ones and our healthcare team want to better understand the situation and be part of the recovery. Improving the communication channels with your healthcare team may help them better understand the condition and facilitate better access to much needed care and resources”.
Check out the Canadian Chiropractic Associations suggestions on how to improve the communication between a patient and their health care provider when it comes to managing pain! http://www.chiropractic.ca/blog/lending-an-ear-to-pain-talking-the-talk/
