The Analysis in Full
This is NOT a Medical Study, simply a substantial collection and analysis of all the feedback data that was available and is subjective reporting from each of those individuals. 3 Feedback forms were excluded from the study as they were incomplete and not signed by the client.
Each client was a volunteer at a training event
Each training event averaged 4 students, who would work with one of these clients directly after their training. Each training event the trainer, Steven Blake, would work with one client, the others being helped by a trainee. So it is estimated that around one fifth of these people would have been helped by the creator of the methodology and four fifths by a newly trained person (that day). It would be their first client ever for this methodology.
Selection of Candidates
A telephone assessment by the trainer to ensure the client fulfilled all the criteria of; #1, had been diagnosed by a medical professional and advised or prescribed pain medication or pain management, #2, they wanted to be free of their pain, #3 whether they were suitable for a newly trained practitioner or for the trainer to work with. All these sessions were given FREE of charge.
Analysis of 216 signed Feedback Forms completed by clients at training events. All sessions had several observers. Clients were helped by a newly trained Practitioner or the Trainer. This is the client’s self evaluation of their perception of their pain levels at the start and end of one session of OldPain2Go® using the Subjective Units of Distress Scale (SUDs). Forms were collated from the period November 2016 until March 2019.
Total clients providing feedback 216
- 167 Recorded zero as an end score
- 49 Recorded an end score that was not zero but was lower than the start score
- 0 (Zero) Recorded no change or a higher end score
167 as a percentage of 216 = 77.31% who perceived no pain at the end of the session
49 as a percentage of 216 = 22.68% who perceived a reduction in pain at the end of the session.
Rounded to the nearest decimal point gives 77% and 23% respectively.
Overall Subjective Units of Distress Scale (SUDs) scores A Zero to 10 scale
Start of session total = 1323 (averaging of 6.1 start score per person)
End of session total = 77 (averaging 0.3 end score per person)
1323 - 77 = 1246 unit reduction
Therefore, overall reduction in perception of pain across all 216 people is; 1,246 as a percentage of 1,323 = 94.179%
167 people perceived a 100% reduction in pain so the other 49 were the source of all 77 units that were still perceptible. Those 49 people recorded 327 units of pain when they arrived (average 6.6 start score per person) and 77 units at the end (average end score 1.57 per person), so had reduced their perceived level of pain by 250 units.
250 as a percentage of 327 = 76.45% average reduction in pain in those who left with some perception of remaining pain.
