Chronic Pain Management

Working closely with a therapist who understands chronic pain is key to its management. At Village Physiotherapy Shellharbour, we have therapists with a level of understanding that can assist you in moving better, feeling better and living better.

Chronic pain is pain lasting beyond the normal healing time of 3 months. It is a broad term that does not tell us much about the quality or severity of pain. As a result, effective management requires a comprehensive assessment and treatment plan.

All of us experience pain differently. Depending on what our pain has resulted from can dictate if it is paired with fear or not. We all have fear, however this fear is associated with movements, activities or certain things in our life resulting from the injury. As a result, management requires an understanding of the brains involvement in pain generation.

At Village Physiotherapy Shellharbour, our aim is to help individuals of the Illawarra suffering with chronic pain to understand pain, and improve quality of life. Detailed education, tailored functional exercises, and self management strategies are key. Above all understanding and kind support from our staff will help keep you on track ensuring you feel empowered to become pain-free.
