As physiotherapists we are perfectly placed to provide education and functional input to help you manage your pain. At Physiosouth we deliver pain management services that are research-based and in line with World Health Organisation guidelines.
Our physiotherapists practice pain management using a biopsychosocial approach. We understand that biology, current social circumstances and what may be happening psychologically in someone’s life, can all potentially influence pain. Our pain therapists have training as developed by the Neuro Orthopaedic Institute, Australia. Founded by David Butler, responsible for the ‘Explain Pain’ revolution, this approach has been described as the cornerstone of modern pain treatment and rehabilitation.
If you have an ACC covered injury you may be eligible to sign up for a pain management program. The program is co-ordinated by your physiotherapist and can be extended to include a multi-disciplinary team (GP, psychologist, pain specialist). As a team, we share information and work together to manage your pain and help you to achieve better outcomes.
We can help you understand why you have flare ups in pain, teach you how to self-manage pain through regular exercise and help you with pacing your daily activities to achieve your goals in life.
We show you how to successfully manage your pain so that you may independently thrive and achieve more in the areas of your life that matter the most.
