Relieve chronic pain with the help of expert physiotherapists
Chronic pain is pain that lasts longer than 3 months or beyond the expected healing time. Chronic pain has a physical component and a psychosomatic component and can be influenced by many factors.
Factors may include emotional distress, your expectations of the condition, general health, co-morbidities, stress, chemical irritants (e.g. smoking) and levels of physical trauma. Our physiotherapists understand chronic pain and can support you through this complex journey.

These chronic pain conditions:
Fibromyalgia may be triggered by an event that causes physical stress or emotional stress or infection. For example, a physical trigger could be an injury sustained from a motor vehicle accident.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)
Chronic fatigue syndrome is similar to fibromyalgia, however, fatigue and an overwhelming lack of energy tend to be the primary symptom. CFS tends to be less painful than fibromyalgia.
Chronic Headaches & Migraines
Chronic headaches and migraines are defined as being present for more than 15 days per month and can be further categorised as chronic migraine or medication overuse headaches. Physiotherapy is the most commonly used form of non-pharmaceutical management of chronic headaches & migraines.
