Altered Pain Sensitivity
Individuals with ASD might have heightened or reduced sensitivity to pain. This can manifest as an intense reaction to minor injuries or minimal reaction to severe ailments.
Diverse Pain Expression
Traditional signs of distress may not always be evident. Instead, changes in behavior, increased stimming, or even aggression might indicate pain or discomfort.
Many with autism have other medical conditions. For instance, gastrointestinal issues are common and can cause significant discomfort. Recognizing and treating these conditions is crucial for overall well-being.
Customized Treatment Approaches
Given the sensory sensitivities, treatments like physiotherapy or certain medications might need adjustments. Our team ensures that therapies are not only effective but also comfortable and tolerable.
Since verbal communication might be limited, we employ various tools like visual scales, sensory descriptors, or even technology-assisted apps to gauge pain levels and treatment effectiveness.
