By helping the clients feel more comfortable, it will often reduce their anxiety. They become calmer, and more compliant. It can reduce their levels of aggression, improving their feeling of well being, and induce better sleep patterns. This could reduce their level of medication, and improve their motivation and mobility, and therefore could help the staff in managing the client.
The pain relief treatment I can offer includes:
Exercise can range from rehabilitation after injury, stretching and exercises for muscular skeletal and neuromuscular problems, to programmes for weight loss and general fitness.
This also will improve their feeling of well-being, and with good progress build their self-esteem. There is now evidence that exercise leads to a significant reduction in depression.
Mobility can be an issue with some of the clients, I can assess there needs, and advice on mobility aids when necessary.
I am able to advise the staff in correct handling techniques for the clients, and in the use of these aids.
In my experience this reduces frustration and again improves the clients self esteem, this will also increase the clients’ independence.
Relaxation is the other aspect I cover; this is another factor in helping the clients cope.
This can range from massage, exercises, to activities such as Pilates. This again will reduce their levels of anxiety, improving their feeling of well being, so to increase motivation and social interaction.
