Multidisciplinary (or interdisciplinary) pain management embraces a combination of medical, physical and psychological therapies and is the most effective way to improve function and mood, and reduce disability.
There are three levels of pain services that may benefit you. Level 1 and 2 facilities will require referral from a GP. In some cases, you will only have access to one of these levels, and may need to travel to a major city to attend a Level 1 facility. Should you require a paediatric pain service for your child, you may even need to travel interstate. Your doctor can discuss your options with you.
