Virtual pain care & video appointments

Don't compromise your health by compromising your pain care amid the COVID-19 pandemic.


Everything you need to know about accessing pain care amid COVID-19.

Pain care is accessible, from the safety of your own home, anywhere across the country.

With the COVID-19 pandemic expected to last at least 6-12 months, we've shifted all appointments online to ensure whole-person pain care remains accessible to all those in need across Australia.

We support various health cover options, including private health cover, workers compensation, DVA or motor vehicle accident insurance.


Caring for your health is more important now than ever before.

The coronavirus is here, and unfortunately, it's unlikely to disappear any time soon. You may feel inclined to postpone or compromise your pain care during this time of uncertainty, but as someone living with a chronic condition, it's more important now than ever to take proper care of your health and minimise the strain chronic pain and stress places on your immunity.

We encourage our patient community to remain as calm as possible during this period and be especially discerning about the health information you deem trustworthy. If you're concerned, uncertain whether to attend the practice, or seeking general support, please don't hesitate to contact our team.

COVID-19 updates for people living with chronic pain in Australia.

23rd march 2020

Painless Cottesloe clinic will be closed amid COVID-19.

Unfortunately — with the escalating seriousness of the COVID-19 pandemic and federal government lockdown regulations now in effect — we have closed the Cottesloe clinic for the foreseeable future. With the data increasingly suggesting this pandemic will last many months (6 on the low end, 24 on the high) we will be shifting our entire practice online immediately — to ensure complete continuity of your pain care.

You will continue to have access to all your Painless practitioners (specialists, doctors and allied therapists) via our simple, easy-to-use, video appointment system. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause but reaffirm our absolute committed to delivering the very best pain care, wherever you may be.

NSAIDs may increase susceptibility or worsen COVID-19.

The World Health Organization has officially recommended that people suffering COVID-19 symptoms avoid taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs), like ibuprofen, after French officials warned that anti-inflammatory drugs could worsen effects of the virus.

There's currently insufficient evidence to say for certain whether NSAIDs taken for pain management — unrelated to coronavirus symptoms — may increase susceptibility to the virus, however at this point in time, we recommend our patients practice caution and minimise these medications where possible. Paracetamol may provide a safer alternative during these uncertain times.
