How to Manage Chronic Pain?

Pain management is a branch in physiotherapy that specialises in reducing pain and allowing the individual to control their experiences of pain. These experiences of pain are pertinent to the individual and serve as signal alarms to ensure that the physical body is free from danger and not threatened in any way. However, at times, the human body can be too sensitised to the external and/or internal stimuli, leading to an undesirable outcome.

At Maxvale Physiotherapy, the physiotherapists at our pain management clinic in Melbourne have competencies in the area of pain, enabling us to identify, recognise, pre-empt and address any potential barriers to recovery that will eventually lead to chronic pain.

The Importance of Seeing an APA Physiotherapist for Pain

Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA) Titled Musculoskeletal Physiotherapists are members of the APA who have completed post graduate qualifications (usually a Master’s degree – a 2-3 years training process that only experienced physiotherapists are allowed to go through) in the specialised area of musculoskeletal and pain physiotherapy.

As such, APA Titled Musculoskeletal Physiotherapists have advanced training in the assessment and management of complex musculoskeletal problems, including pain. Their higher level of training enables them to assess, treat and manage complex pain conditions such as injury pain, joint pain and nerve pain with a range of different treatments and techniques.

Maxvale Physiotherapy conducts weekly chronic pain management program talks by specialist physiotherapist Dr Max Lim for our patients. These talks allow patients to successfully manage and control their pain experience to help them find relief.
