If your neck pain continues despite treatment and is affecting your day-to-day activities and perhaps affecting your mood, a pain management programme may help you. This won't get rid of the pain but will help you have a better quality of life in spite of the pain.

Pain management programmes are generally outpatient group sessions run by a team of healthcare professionals, including doctors, physiotherapistspsychologists and sometimes nursesoccupational therapists and other specialist clinicians. These programmes typically include:

  • education
  • exercise
  • coping strategies
  • the use of medication.

Your doctor may be able to refer you if they think you’d benefit from a pain management programme.
