The information provided on the website Don’t Go to the Ouch is to be used for educational purposes only.
There will be no attempt to treat any pain condition nor will Gloria Gilbert respond to any personal inquiries about individual problems.
The information on this site is based on the clinical experience of Gloria Gilbert, physiotherapist working in London, Ontario, Canada. Gloria has developed this website integrating her experience with information provided in peer reviewed articles, research and the current understanding by clinicians about the benefits of inter-disciplinary management of the person with chronic pain symptoms.
The website should be considered a Guidebook or Handbook - providing you with principles of pain management and exercise in particular.
Information on the many tools needed to assist in developing the reader’s own pain management program will be provided.
Since we are not dealing with a disease, there is no ‘cure’ for chronic or persistent non-malignant pain. It is anticipated that this website will assist you, and your health professionals, in developing their own pathway to recovery or rehabilitation which in turn may assist with improved control of pain and other symptoms.
The primary goal of this website is to improve a persons’ ability to involve themselves in their daily activities.
The information on this new website can be considered a FIRST STEP. The information is not complete nor can it be when we are dealing with a topic which affects millions of people throughout the world who have so many individual differences.
