Pain

Our Practitioners and Wellness Experts are experienced in the management of pain.

In Australia, pain that seriously affects the day-to-day lives’ of people is more common than you think. One in 5 Australians aged 45 and over are living with persistent, ongoing pain. 

Pain can have serious effects on your enjoyment of day-to-day life, can stop you from working, and severely disrupt your general comfort. If left untreated, it can often lead to feelings of ongoing stress and lead to other mental health issues. 

What are the different types of pain?

Suffering from pain is complex, and everyone experiences pain differently depending on where it has stemmed from in the body. Some of the most common types of pain include:

What are traditional treatments for pain?

Non-surgical treatments like physiotherapy, chiropractic, acupuncture, massage, yoga, stress reduction strategies, exercise are common treatments, as well as over the counter medication, and supplements or vitamins. 

Are there alternative treatments for pain?

If you are experiencing long term pain and have tried other medications and pain management strategies that haven’t worked for you, we encourage you to seek advice from a healthcare professaional and speak with one of our experienced Practitioners or Wellness Experts. After assessing your specific needs, our practitioners will determine a suitable treatment plan for you.
