Who We Are

Pain restrains. Pain binds. Pain is an impediment to enjoy the simplest pleasures of life. The very personal experience that it is, pain cannot be shared. But...it can be understood and reduced.

Our policy

It is our policy that no treatments are started until every reasonable step has been taken to explore the underlying factors contributing to your pain. This means that in some instance you will need:

  • Additional diagnostic testing referrals (MRI, nerve conduction studies, etc)
  • Referral to our in-house allied-health team (e.g. physiotherapy, occupational therapy). This presents a rare opportunity to achieve closely coordinated treatments with professionals who are used to working together
  • Multidisciplinary assessment, which takes upto three hours and involves appointments with a pain specialist, a psychologist, an occupational therapist and a physiotherapist. A multidisciplinary case conference is held on the same day with the aim of developing a comprehensive problem list and treatment recommendations. In the afternoon you will have a feedback session with a designated doctor. A detailed report is then generated summarizing our findings and recommendations and this is sent to you along with a copy to your referring doctor
