This service is provided by one of our physiotheapists (all with experience and training in musculoskeletal pain assessment and management).
This can be provided for a limited number of sessions (typically, up to 10 x 30-60 minute sessions). In sub-acute cases (4-12 weeks post injury) fewer sessions are likely.
Referral can be from a GP or specialist, insurer, rehabilitation provider or other health professionals
In some cases the treatment provided may be a combination of physical and psychological therapies at the PMRC.
This is a rare opportunity to achieve closely coordinated physiotherapy and psycholocal interventions with clinicians used to working together.
For more generaly disabled, distressed and/or medication dependent patients, one of our intensive cognitive-behavioural, multidisciplinary treatment programs may be recommended. These involve groups of 8-10 patients at a time working with the small team of staff. It is our experience that there are significant functional benefits for this group of patients to attend the more intensive program if they meet the entry criteria (see ADAPT).
