Break free from chronic pain.

Chronic pain can be reversed. This is our area of expertise.

Chronic pain is defined as pain lasting longer than three months (or an acceptable time for tissue healing to occur).

Whatever its initial trigger, pain becomes more complex the longer it persists. Overtime, it influences many aspects of your health and life.

Fortunately, this process is reversible.

Imagine your life...

With less pain

At Painless, our entire staff have dedicated their careers to helping people like you find long-term solutions to chronic pain.

And more support

Recovering from pain is a journey. Our goal is to support you along the way, in every way we can, so you can return to a full life.

THE CHALLENGE

Chronic pain is always multifaceted.

– less protocols

Chronic pain is a puzzle - and every pain puzzle is unique. Solving it requires all the right pieces and a variety of perspectives to put them together. This is the reason standardised protocols often fail to achieve lasting relief.

+ more puzzle solving

We practice integrative medicine. Applying a "whole person" lens, we work collaboratively to understand every piece of your pain puzzle ⁠— then we develop a personalised treatment plan to solve it.

PATIENT STORY: NATASHA

"Combining integrative medicine with specialised multidisciplinary therapies was the missing piece. My treatment at Painless finally achieved lasting relief."

WE BELIEVE

Cookie cutters have no place in medicine.

“No two people experience pain the same way, therefore, they shouldn’t be treated the same way. We aim to personalise every aspect of our care to each patient and their unique circumstances”.

OUR SOLUTION

Stack the tools that work best for you.

Medication, education, lifestyle change, procedures, physio and everything in between.

There's no one single solution that will relieve 100% of your pain. However, there are many small solutions that, when combined, can achieve long-lasting relief.

By combining integrative pain medicine, specialised pain therapies and wellness care, you'll finally gain momentum in your recovery.

Why group therapy?

Expert pain care shouldn't have to come coupled with financial distress. Having witnessed its obstructive effects on recovery, our team are committed to finding new ways to serve patients under financial distress.

This inspired the formation of our pain care therapy groups. Led by expert health providers, our therapy groups make specialised pain care accessible to all those who need it most. They also provide an invaluable opportunity to overcome the social isolation so often experienced by those living with pain.
