Managing pain

If you’re in pain after a broken bone, it can be managed. There are things you can do to help lessen the pain and continue your daily life in as much comfort as possible.

It's natural to feel like you need to stop doing the things you love to avoid being in pain. But this doesn't need to be the case. We can help you take action to lessen any pain you may have. 

Managing your pain can help you sleep more soundly and improve your mental well-being. Both of these can help you cope better with pain when it does come.

Everyone responds to pain differently, so pain relief that works for one person might not be effective for another.

A good working partnership between you, your family and your doctor is a helpful starting point. And we're always here for you if you need help coping with your pain, or a friendly conversation with someone who understands what you're going through.
