SIRPA provides a cutting edge approach to help individuals eradicate pain as well as other persistent symptoms, rather than just learning to live with them. There are numerous conditions we treat, including; persistent back/neck/joint pain, pelvic pain, sciatica etc.
SIRPA’s approach focuses on actual recovery, rather than treating or managing the pain. It involves an educational, evidence-based and self-empowering approach to help individuals identify and acknowledge the underlying causes of their pain while also developing new neural pathways which allow a pain free, healthy life. Because the neural pathways involved in chronic pain are reversible, full recovery is possible, irrespective of the pain’s severity or duration. Our treatment approach focuses on four main areas: Knowledge, Emotions, Behaviour and Lifestyle. All of these play a significant role in not just enabling individuals to resolve chronic pain and other persistent conditions, but in becoming more stress resilient, emotionally intelligent and able to live a healthy, active life moving forwards.
Are you fed up with your pain?
Once we have ruled out tissue-damaging conditions, such as: cancer, infection, fracture and autoimmune diseases, most cases of persistent/chronic or recurring pain are found to be caused by the brain, rather than there being something wrong with the part of the body that hurts. We now understand that the brain can learn to do this as a way of protecting us from a perceived threat, which is often related to an unresolved emotional turmoil, whether that’s past or present. This is sometimes referred to as a ‘maladaptive stress response’. The neural pathways that connect the brain with the site of pain can become learned and persistently active, especially when conventional treatments address only the pain symptoms and not the underlying causes.
