CHRONIC PAIN MANAGEMENT
PainNT Better Together
Persistent pain is best managed with an inter-professional approach, combining medical, physical and psychological therapies. This is often referred to as a biopsychosocial approach, because it addresses all the factors that contribute to the experience of pain.
We are proud to be a founding member of PainNT, a collaboration of local organisations with a commitment to delivering world class pain management services in the NT.
Our program, based in Palmerston, NT, has been designed by an experienced inter-professional team to support adults of all ages and life stages to achieve their goals and return to maximum function- despite pain.
The program includes:
Comprehensive biopsychosocial assessment
6-week targeted, multidisciplinary Pain Program (x2 half-days per week)
“Maintenance” program (if required)
Self-management approach (exercise, pacing, flare-up management, mood, stress and sleep strategies)
Planning for return to work and other important life activities
