Acute Pain

If you have a ‘bushfire’ of pain raging in your body we aim to put it out as quickly as possible. Once the pain is under control we drill deeper to identify the causes of your problem. We then work with you to devise a plan that will provide maximum short-term relief while promoting the best possible longer-term outcomes.

Co-ordination with other medical specialists

The expertise at MPPFG is complemented by an extensive referral network of medical specialists.

 Difficult, stubborn conditions

Chronic Pain

Challenging lifestyles and work practices can produce chronic symptoms of pain, stiffness, fatigue and general malaise that make it difficult to be at your best.

We can identify stressors which contribute to chronic conditions and recurring symptoms and help to co-ordinate the best treatment and self-help options.
