Have a couple of aches and pains (reconstructed shoulder, metalwork, spinal injury) that have been with me for many years and starting to get pretty wearing. The NHS have done all they can (and they've been pretty good) and I've pursued the private route too. Had a mix of ops, medication, physio, Pilates and similar, alternative, lifestyle stuff etc. My flexibility/core strength etc is deemed 'very good' (physio words not mine!) and I do this every day.
The option now for pain management seems to be medication which I'm slightly hesitant about as much that I get relief, it does knock me out a fair bit and the do age is relatively high.
My osteo suggested I consider CBT ... beyond Googling, no experience of this ... anyone able to enlighten a wee bit?
