Dr. Nihal Williams is a General Practitioner with over 20 years of experience in medical practice, and a special interest in pain medicine. He combines his medical expertise with a deep understanding of pain science to develop personalized care plans for patients with chronic pain.

My Background

After observing increasing rates of chronic pain in his patients, Dr. Williams took it upon himself to learn more about the science of persistent pain. He delved deep into the medical literature and became increasingly passionate about sharing his knowledge with patients and their families. He was invited to present the 'Making Sense of Pain' module of Painless' educational group program in 2015, and soon after joined the Painless team in practice.

My Approach

Dr. Williams believes that every treatment should be personalized to the unique needs of each individual. He places equal importance on helping patients improve their overall quality of life as on reducing their pain, combining medical interventions with active self-management strategies.

My Favourite Therapies

  • Low-risk pharmacology, including non-opioid analgesics and topical medications
  • Diagnostic investigations, such as imaging and nerve conduction studies
  • Sleep support and guidance on sleep hygiene
  • Patient education
  • Active self-management strategies
  • Pacing skills
