If you are in pain and are seeking help, contact your GP or health professional to discuss your pain management options.
There are many aspects to pain management and different pathways to care. Modern pain care uses a ‘whole person’ approach that considers physical, social and psychological factors. It is the most effective way to reduce pain, improve function and mood and reduce disability.
It is important to find a supportive and understanding GP, as they will be your primary point of contact for your pain condition. In collaboration with you, your GP can develop a Management Plan. If you have associated mental health issues, you can also access help through a Mental Health Treatment Plan.
