OUR APPROACH

Thinking in equations

Effective pain care is an equation of carefully considered additions and subtractions.

At Painless, we approach pain as an equation. A puzzle. Each case unique.

Typical pain care protocols only ever 'add'. Medications, therapies, tools - these additions can be very valuable, but ultimately fall flat in isolation.

The missing piece in pain care today is the subtraction. We must add the tools needed to manage pain, while removing the factors that drive it to begin with.

SUBTRACTIONS

Painless subtractions.

At best, overlooking 'subtractions' hinders recovery. At worst, it leads to harm.

Our 'subtractions' serve three primary purposes: they remove obstacles to effective care, they minimise risk and they remove underlying drivers of chronic pain.

SUBTRACTIONS

Remove obstacles to effective care.

– No band-aid fixes

We will not mask symptoms with temporary quick-fixes while ignoring the underlying cause of your condition.

– No access issues

We offer digital appointments via skype, google hangout or facetime to any patient who cannot make it to our clinic.

– No rushed appointments

We do not offer short appointments (less than 30 minutes) that prevent our doctors from providing comprehensive care.

– No long wait list

Our average wait time for new patients is typically within a few weeks. For urgent cases, our support team are often able to arrange an accelerated appointment.

– No addictive drugs

We do not prescribe high-risk, addictive medications, such as "classical" opioids or benzodiazepines.

– No invasive surgeries

We do not perform invasive, high-risk surgeries, nor will we offer procedures without first trialing other options.

SUBTRACTIONS

Remove underlying causes of pain.

It's impossible to achieve lasting pain-relief without removing the underlying causes.

Sleep, stress, nutrition and movement form the basis for healthy, painless living.

As well as combining specialist multidisciplinary medicine, we focus on these critical lifestyle factors with our patients. By adopting a "whole-person approach" we always strive to solve the source of pain. Not just address the symptoms.

– Less sleep difficulties

Our sleep specialist and GP's will help you to solve poor sleep through a combination of medical and lifestyle support.

– Less diet confusion

Our nutritionists will support you to remove the inflammatory foods that contribute to pain and illness.

– Less movement fear

Our physios and OT's will support you to introduce physical movement in a sustainable way, without triggering pain flares.

– Less stress & distress

Our psychologists and OT's will support you to better manage your stress.

WE BELIEVE

All pain is real, whatever it's cause.

“Often, the greatest obstacle isn't finding someone to treat you, it's finding people who truly understand and empathise with you. Patients shouldn't have to struggle to be heard by their health professionals.”
MEET TRACY wallwork

Every 'addition' has a clear purpose with proven efficacy.

We are highly selective about our 'additions' at Painless. Be it a tool, therapy, medication or procedure, every 'addition' we bring to the table has been carefully considered and supported by science.

ADDITIONS

Painless additions.

Integrated care

Our multidisciplinary team integrate their many medical specialities to offer a wide range of targeted interventions.

Personalised treatment

We believe the best outcomes occur when treatments are made to fit the patient, not the other way around.

Science-based practice

Every practice and procedure at Painless is backed by the highest quality of scientific research.

WE BELIEVE

Good science equals good medicine.

“Every protocol, practice or procedure at Painless is firmly grounded in evidence-based medicine and the science of behaviour change.”
