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...

And more support

Addressing the root cause is essential.

“Our goal is to solve your condition, not suppress your symptoms. Addressing the root cause of your pain allows us to stop it in its tracks; not just preventing progression, but effectively reversing it all together.”

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 integrated medicine. This means our doctors, specialists and allied health professionals work collaboratively. We'll piece together a multifaceted treatment plan to solve the puzzle of your pain.

PATIENT STORY

"Combining the expertise of pain specialists with multidisciplinary care 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”.
Meet Dr PAVLA WALSH
Dr Pavla Walsh is a Pain Specialist & Rheumatologist with expertise in both adult and pediatric pain care.
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 integrating pain education and lifestyle change with specialist medicine, you'll finally gain momentum in your recovery.

Please note, we do not prescribe "classical" opioid medications. Rather, we focus on high-impact, low-risk alternatives.
