EXPHYS REHAB’s innovative Pain Management program integrates modern pain neuroscience research with rehabilitation best practice. It is no longer acceptable for people to be told to simply put up with their pain.

Persistent pain, also known as chronic pain, is one of Australia’s biggest health issues. Yet it remains one of the most misunderstood areas of healthcare. The exciting news is that research demonstrates that health outcomes are greatly improved when people are provided with best practice pain management.

EXPHYS REHAB’s core philosophy is that knowledge is power, particularly for people living with persistent pain. A person with persistent pain deserves to be empowered to manage their condition, to live a meaningful life.

As each individual’s pain experience is unique, EXPHYS REHAB’s Pain Management program is provided one on one. The biopsychosocial approach is an essential component to EXPHYS REHAB Pain Management interventions. EXPHYS REHAB’s Pain Management program integrates the work of Neuro Orthopaedic Institute (NOI) and ‘Explain Pain’.

A comprehensive initial assessment determines the person’s knowledge of their persistent pain, assesses their condition, and evaluates the extent their condition is impacting on their life. Clinical decision making is then applied, regarding the most appropriate EXPHYS REHAB Pain Management program.

Education & Functional Integration

Simple functional movement can be tolerated. But persistent pain is significantly impacting performance of work or daily activities, and quality of life

  • Intensive pain neuroscience education empowering an individual to understand their unique pain experience
  • Integration of functional movement specific to work or daily living activities

Education & Graded Motor Imagery (GMI)

Simple functional movement can not be tolerated due to hypersensitivity. The thought of moving the ‘affected’ body part may even create a pain response

  • Intensive pain neuroscience education empowering an individual to understand their unique pain experience
  • Combined with GMI to settle the sensitive nervous system, by training the brain to tolerate simple functional movement
