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.
A MESSAGE FROM THE PAINLESS TEAM
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.

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.
