SIRPA Ltd provides a cutting edge approach to resolving pain, rather than helping you learn to live with it.
"Medical 'treatment' or palliative care focusses on suppressing or masking symptoms - 'palliative' derives from the Latin 'palliare', to cloak. Finally, with SIRPA, we now have a non-suppressive approach to chronic pain; this is the true medicine" Dr Adam Al-Kashi, Head of Research, Backcare UK
The acute pain of an injury is an unpleasant, but important, biological signal indicating tissue damage. However, we are beginning to understand that where there is no underlying physical disease, such as cancer or an auto-immune disorder, chronic pain is actually created by the brain and central nervous system rather than the bodily location where the pain is felt to be.
The triggers for the brain to create pain are many and varied, but the nervous system’s response is an adapted form of our primal 'fight and flight' response and therefore is unconscious and automatic. Unfortunately nerve pathways become learned and symptoms can persist due to conditionng.
SIRPA's pioneering approach to recovery from chronic pain
SIRPA’s approach is based on this concept and uses education as well as numerous self-empowering strategies to address the central nervous system directly, via its ‘software’ – the mind. As the pain process itself is reversible full recovery is possible, no matter how severe or longstanding the condition.
Pain is often not just an unpleasant inconvenience; it can torture and incapacitate you, severely impacting your quality of life and your ability to function. The SIRPA approach enables individuals to make the necessary shifts, often with life changing results.
