Specialised pain care for people with work-related pain and injuries.

At Painless, we understand the challenges rehab providers face in finding effective, trustworthy pain care for their patients.

Work Capacity Assessments

Painless' work capacity assessments are designed to provide a holistic evaluation of a patient's functional abilities, overall well-being, and readiness to return to work.

Our Occupational Therapists (OT) and Pain Specialists collaborate closely to create a nurturing environment for patients, ensuring comprehensive guidance for both patients and rehabilitation providers throughout the recovery journey.

OT Functional Assessment

Our experienced OTs conduct a customized assessment of each patient's physical, cognitive, and psychosocial abilities, focusing on their work demands.

Ongoing Evaluation

In some cases, our OTs may conduct multiple sessions, spaced apart, to monitor patient progress and identify any changes in their abilities or needs.

Collaboration with Pain Specialists

After completing the functional assessments, the OT shares their findings and recommendations with a Pain Specialist, who reviews the case and consults with the patient.

Certificate of Capacity

The Pain Specialist provides their final recommendations and certificate, considering the patient's current abilities, necessary workplace accommodations, and potential for ongoing progress.


Our focus on functional outcomes is driven by the belief that pain management should go beyond just reducing pain levels. We believe that helping patients regain their ability to perform daily activities, engage in meaningful work, and enjoy a fulfilling life is crucial to their overall well-being.

This focus emphasises the importance of restoring patients' quality of life, rather than solely concentrating on pain relief. It recognises that pain significantly impacts a person's physical, emotional, and social well-being. By targeting functional outcomes, we address these interconnected aspects, enabling patients to regain control over their lives and achieve long-term success in managing their pain.
