There are many causes of pain and many different ways of fighting it. Some of our patients are helped with medications, others with injections and still others with advanced interventional techniques. Most people suffering with pain also benefit from a dose of good old-fashioned understanding.
There may not be a quick or obvious solution to the distress your pain is causing you. Although we help many people, it’s important to find pain relief strategies that work for you, so you can start to get your life back.
Frankston Pain Management has been established for over 20 years. The way we fight pain is constantly advancing as scientific research reveals new and more effective methods of pain management.
Many factors can affect your perception of pain — things such as whether you’re sleeping OK, the stress you’re under, the amount of social support you’re getting, your capacity for exercise, your job, your state of mind — and the things you’ve already tried.
At our clinic you’ll have a team of professionals working to help you.
