Functional Nutrition for Chronic Pain

By Maggie Bergeron

Over the last decade there have been many scientific advances in understanding the neurophysiology of pain, but quickly and accurately assessing a patient’s chronic pain problem in a busy clinical setting remains a challenge. 

An important first step in developing a plan of care and implementing successful pain management is a comprehensive biopsychosocial assessment.

Chronic pain is shaped by a myriad of biomedical, psychosocial (patients’ thoughts, beliefs, expectations, and mood), and behavioral factors (context, responses by peers, and society). 

How chronic pain is conceptualized influences how pain is evaluated, and lifestyle factors must be considered when developing a treatment plan. 

A comprehensive assessment of the whole person is essential for optimal outcomes.

There are 5 Pillars of Pain Reduction that are critical to assess:

   1. Activity 
   2. Knowledge
   3. Mood
   4. Nutrition
   5. Sleep

Functional nutrition improves patient outcomes and expands the scope of services available to patients, referral sources and communities. 

The Western diet, along with a sedentary lifestyle is pro-inflammatory and can lead to a number of chronic diseases encountered in physiotherapy practice. Optimizing nutrition is a powerful way to halt and reverse many chronic pain syndromes. Diet and nutrition are key components of primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention of many conditions managed by physiotherapists. It is the role of the physiotherapists to screen for and provide information on diet and nutrition to patients and the community. The integration of functional nutrition into physiotherapy practice is an evidence-based approach for resolving chronic pain and fast becoming a best practice.

How to Help Your Patients with Persistent Pain

By Maggie Bergeron

Too often as clinicians we feel bad about our clinical skills when we “fail to help” those who seek our care in desperate need of pain relief. I certainly felt that if only I took more courses on manual therapy, biomechanics, soft tissue release or strengthening then I would be able to help them better.

I WAS WRONG.

The reason some of my patients were not responding to my treatments was because I was trying to “fix a structure”, when in fact they did NOT NEED ANYTHING FIXED! 🤔

Using Automated Patient Outreach to Improve Patient Communications

Automated patient outreach technologies don’t just make care access simpler for patients, but for providers, too.

High-touch patient communication is one of the key elements of meaningful patient engagement. As providers work to get their patients in the clinic door, automated patient outreach tools have been a boon.

Automated patient outreach tools simplify the process of contacting patients, scheduling appointments, and reminding patients of important information leading up to an appointment. Organizations can use automated patient outreach tools to contact patients who are due for a [visit and more].

Organizations state that these tools simplify their booking and call centers, noting that automated messages free up phone lines for calls that require a human touch.

But how do automated patient communication technologies work? And how have organizations implemented them? Below, PatientEngagementHIT.com explore the primary modes of automated patient outreach tools and how they impacted organizations . . . Read the full article here
