Cognitive Functional Therapy (CFT)

CFT is an effective and functional approach for the management of pain especially back pain.

We all have a behavioural response to pain, such as protective muscle guarding actions or feelings of tightness and tension.  We can become avoidant of activities that may aggravate our pain.   We can also become quite distressed by pain.  Importantly, we must remember that these behavioural responses are quite normal, after all, who wants to be in pain.  It stops us from enjoying the things we live for, like gardening, cooking, walking, or playing with the kids for example.  Pain has a purpose.  It’s an innate, protective, and very normal mechanism of our brain and body to the threat of impending doom, or not, as is most often the case!  Now, I am not belittling the pain experience here, it is very real, and it can be very debilitating.  We can’t ignore it.  It draws our attention to a part of the body that is ‘in pain’.

However, problems arise when these behavioural responses start to impact on our wellbeing, our mental health, our sleeping patterns, our leisure habits, our working lives, our eating habits, and our relationships with others.  As mentioned, pain is an innate protective response of the body to injury, and incredibly, this normal response is activated even when there is no injury or no sign of tissue damage at all.

In fact, pain can be made worse by feelings of stress, worry, anxiousness, and even depression.  It can even be made worse by what we eat!  Which is just amazing.  The human body is simply phenomenal.
