The idea behind long term pain management is to turn existing with chronic pain into living with chronic pain.
If your condition has proved resistant to treatment, the search for a cure is, reluctantly, replaced by the pursuit of an improvement in your quality of life. Multi-disciplinary pain management programmes, sometimes residential, are often the starting point. Through multi-disciplinary therapy and lifestyle changes they have a good track record in helping sufferers improve their function and quality of life.
People can and do live with chronic pain; many of our clients are testament to that. However, this is often only possible if they are financially secure. It is difficult to exist or to live with chronic pain if you have the constant worry of fast depleting resources.
Chronic pain can and does have huge financial consequences; lost earnings, lost pension, the cost of future care, treatment and therapies, aids, equipment and adaptations for their home. The list goes on.
“Clare Lowes at BLB Solicitors was my solicitor after I changed from [my previous solicitor]. I can testify that the difference was immediately noticeable. Clare was a whirlwind of activity unlike [my last solicitors]. When you’re in pain 24/7 you have to rely so much on other people and I quickly learnt that I could rely on and trust Clare.” VY (£310,000 received), April 2018
