“The good physician treats the disease; the great physician treats the patient who has the disease.”

What to expect on the day
Patients need to complete online pain questionnaires prior to the initial appointment.
The initial appointment will be between 30 minutes and 45 minutes depending on the complexity of the condition. This involves taking a history of your pain and asking you questions about work, family, your psychological history, and so on. This is so your pain physiotherapist can better understand you and the impact of your pain.
After the assessments are complete we will develop a comprehensive management plan. The assessment findings and management plans will be discussed with your doctor.
