Quality pain care does not have to come partnered with financial distress.
The strain chronic pain can place on a person — on their life, their family, their dreams — is immeasurable. And yet, it's estimated only 10% of pain sufferers ever receive access to effective pain care.
Available mid-week and weekends, our 75 minutes therapy groups sessions consist of small groups (5-8 people) to ensure all participants receive the highest quality of care.
All groups are led by expert clinical psychologists and/or occupational therapists with expertise in pain care.
Private health insurance rebates are available for all group therapy sessions. Medicare rebates are also available for those with a GP referral or Mental Health Care Plan.
For all other health cover options, please contact our support team. They can provide more specific information regarding worker's comp, DVA and motor vehicle accident insurance cover.
Research shows social isolation reliably predicts poor recovery.
Studies performed on people living with persistent pain suggest social isolation is not only correlated with, but also causative of, increased pain and disability. Meanwhile, activities that encourage social engagement and interpersonal connection actually improve recovery rates and quality of life.
"Our study provides evidence that the impact of pain is reduced in individuals who perceive a greater sense of inclusion from and engagement with others. This study enhances the understanding of how social factors affect pain and have implications for how the effectiveness of therapeutic interventions may be improved. Therapeutic interventions aimed at increasing social connection hold merit in reducing the impact of pain on engagement with activities."
