Injury and Pain Treatment and Rehabilitation
The Injury and Pain Medicine Clinic provides chronic pain management for patients with complex pain conditions. Patients are seen by Amanda who has undertaken post-graduate training in Pain Medicine. Amanda continues to carry out her own research in this complex area of medicine.
Chronic pain affects mood and often causes a patient to become less sociable and generally impacts on all aspects of life. We have the expertise and knowledge to use the most effective and up-to-date treatment techniques for patients who have chronic pain, with the goal of reducing their pain, thereby improving function of the affected limb and to allow a patient to become more independent and engaged in normal daily tasks.
It must be understood that treatment for chronic pain is long-term, and requires the patient to participate in a treatment plan over a period of months as opposed to weeks.
The Injury and Pain Medicine Clinic works with local Pain Medicine Consultants providing a multidisciplinary approach to achieve a successful patient outcome.
Our Pain Medicine Clinic deals with chronic pain conditions such as:
- complex regional pain syndrome - fibromyalgia
- polymyalgia - amputee pain (phantom pain)
- diabetic neuropathy - osteoarthritis
