Chronic pain is a major problem in Australia today. This area of medicine is poorly understood by the general public, and also many health professionals. Sufferers are often misunderstood, or seen as overstating their problems by medicos. Even family and friends find it difficult to believe sufferers’ problems and find it impossible to help. It is hard for someone who has not suffered from chronic pain to understand exactly how devastating this problem can be.
Whilst it may be poorly understood by the general public, there has been an enormous quantity of research into chronic pain. The advancements in the diagnosis, treatment and management of this problem has progressed greatly in recent times. There is now a much clearer understanding of what does, and does not work in helping individuals with chronic pain.
There are now specialist services available that use this scientific research evidence, and provide treatment based on an internationally recognised gold standard.
