Chronic pain, meaning pain which has lasted longer than three months, is very common, affecting an estimated one in five Australians.
The causes of chronic pain may be simple, such as poor sitting posture or standing posture, or more complex.
Chronic pain is frequently contributed to by psychosocial factors such as mood, beliefs, mental health, stress, your work environment, your home environment and your past experience with treatment.
Developing a good understanding of your condition and the factors contributing to your pain is a very important part of the treatment of chronic pain. A personalised rehab program is also a big part of helping to reduce your pain and improve your function.
