More about our process

Changing lives

[rev_slider home-slider]

Persistent pain is less about the tissue and nerve injury at the site of the original trauma.

It is more about the patterns of increased activity in the brain and spinal cord. The good news is that the central nervous system is not hard wired. It is neuroplastic , that is, it can change its own structure.

Empowering the patient to actively manage their pain encourages new neural pathways. Hence, long term the patient has less central sensitisation, activity avoidance and worry.

This is a fundamental shift in direction from medications and procedures to treat pain to the development of a whole person approach. Eventually, the person learns skills in self management to reduce their reliance on medical treatments

Our philosophy

At Pain Medicine Sydney we believe effective pain management is a process, not a pill.

Our dedicated specialists offer a multi-disciplinary approach to pain management which combines medical and holistic techniques.

By recognising the social, psychological and physical factors that contribute to pain, we can give your patients the best chance of managing their pain and regaining their quality of life.

We focus on building resilience in patients through a five-step process:

  • pain diagnosis and chronic pain planning
  • support for medication rationalisation
  • cognitive behaviour therapy
  • lifestyle planning
  • interventional procedures

With more than a decade’s experience in the field, our team offers a fresh approach to pain management. Recognising pain as a ‘whole person’ issue, our process incorporates a variety of treatment options and results in more favourable patient outcomes.
