Pain Rehab and Recovery Program, NT

Brought to you by…

Persistent pain is best managed with an inter-professional approach, combining medical, physical and psychological therapies.  This is often referred to as a biopsychosocial approach, because it addresses all the factors that contribute to the experience of pain.

Our program, based in Palmerston, NT, has been designed by an inter-professional team of experienced professionals to support adults of all ages and life stages to achieve their goals and return to maximum function. The program includes:

  • Comprehensive biopsychosocial assessment
  • 6-week targeted, multidisciplinary Pain Program (x2 half-days per week)
  • “Maintenance” program (if required)
  • Self-management approach (exercise, pacing, flare-up management, mood, stress and sleep strategies)
  • Planning for return to work and other important life activities
  • Recommendations for next steps
