Persistent pain...

Nerve pain...

Unexplained pain...

Complex pain...

Chronic pain...

Pain issues like this affect 1 in 5 Australians.
If it's not you that is dealing with chronic pain, it is probably someone close to you.
These problems are difficult to deal with, and in most cases there is not going to be a way to 'fix' the pain.

However, there is a lot that can be done to improve the situation:

  • Education

    Research has shown that if you understand more about how and why your brain and body are making you feel pain, you will manage the pain better, and often feel less pain too.

  • Empowerment

    Chronic pain can dominate your life, but with help you can start to make decisions that give you more and more control over your life, and over your pain.

  • Exercise

    General exercise for fitness and strength; specific exercises for the injured or painful part of your body. When introduced carefully and increased gradually, these things have been proven to help manage persistent pain problems.
