SummaryPain which affects mobility and the ability to carry out the tasks of daily living represent the crux of many patients┐ decision to seek relief from a painful condition. Traditionally categorised associated with the pain of joints, bone and muscles, the concept is far more wide reaching: the chest pain of an angina sufferer preventing a patient┐s walk to the shops, the pain of a dental abscess causing inability to ┐mobilise┐ the mandible to speak or eat, the abdominal pain of a patient with peptic ulcer disease who cannot lie down in bed are relevant examples, some distance from traditional orthodoxy. More familiar will be knee or hip related disease preventing the climbing of stairs or arthritic conditions of the hands preventing food preparation or washing.

┐I can┐t DO this anymore because of pain┐ type of presentation forms the basis of the approach to this course, and creates a natural link to the biopsychosocial model of pain management, unhindered by traditional perceptions based around specific body systems. A strong association with functionality associated with mobility pain will be established and maintained within the learning on this course.
