Étant donné que la douleur fatigue, il est important de savoir gérer son énergie afin de pouvoir la conserver et éviter ainsi d’aggraver la situation. Savoir gérer son énergie permet de plus de faire des tâches qui sont importantes en réduisant les efforts nécessaires. Les personnes ayant des douleurs chroniques ont parfois des comportements qui aggravent la douleur. Il existe trois types de comportement : excès-rupture, douleur comme guide et approche combinée. Ce dépliant explique ce que vous pouvez faire pour conserver votre énergie. Les techniques présentées sont les suivantes : aller à son propre rythme, tenir compte de son niveau de base, décomposer les tâches en petites parties, action-repos-action.
This pamphlet is a French translation of the English pamphlet 2114, "Pain and Pacing Daily Activities". Pain lowers your body’s energy resources. Energy management is a way to manage your body’s energy levels. It includes different ways of using and saving energy so that you do not make your pain worse or cause a flare-up. It helps you do important activities by lowering the amount of energy your body uses. People with chronic pain may have activity styles that increase their pain. These activity styles are known as: boom-bust, pain as your guide, and combination approach. This pamphlet explains how you can save your energy. Techniques listed include pacing, working within your baseline, breaking down activities into smaller parts, and do-rest-do.
