What Is Chronic Pain ?
Chronic pain is when someone’s pain continues to cause distress after the expected time of healing has passed. Often medical treatments have only partially relieved the symptoms and in many cases chronic pain sufferers have exhausted all medical treatment options. The result is a condition which can lead to difficulties in many areas of one’s life (work, social activities and family relationships). Often it can lead to a sense frustration at oneself or the situation.
Our qualified clinicians have been trained to work with people suffering with chronic pain and can provide support in ongoing change or adjustments to the situation more effectively.

We are aware that you may be in almost constant pain at times and that this may be taking energy from other areas of your life.
