It is estimated that 1 in 5 Australians suffer with ongoing or persistent pain. Persistent pain can come in the form of neck pain, headaches, back pain, shoulder pain, arthritis, fibromyalgia or pain following surgery. It is now widely accepted that treating persistent pain requires a different, more holistic approach than the standard approach to acute injury treatment.
At Lifecare Frankston we have practitioners specifically trained and experienced in helping people with ongoing pain, who can provide a personalised treatment programs. Often the best approach is a collaborative program including one or more disciplines including Physiotherapy, Psychology, Hydrotherapy, Exercise Physiology and Nutrition.
