Towards a model of chronic pain management Workers who are victims of an accident at work or occupational disease

Project: Research Project

Project Details


The problem of management of workers with chronic pain, for this an approximation is made to the problem of chronic pain, the affected spheres of action are identified and a methodological device is developed aimed at understanding the impact of an alternative pain management strategy based on yoga, given that the scientific literature accounts for the existence of a close relationship between chronic pain and other diseases such as depression and anxiety, which presumably hinder the return to the world of work and negatively affect the welfare of people.
A pilot study is designed with the participation of 60 volunteers, the study is developed in three phases: The first phase is aimed at identifying pain perception and quality of life; the second phase is designed to expose a group of volunteers to yoga-based control therapy, and another group to pain management techniques]; the third phase is aimed at collecting workers' perception at the end of the process.
As a result, it will be possible to identify the elements that can be integrated into a complementary therapeutic management strategy for patients with chronic pain.
