National Pain Week is from 25th– 31st July 2016 led by Chronic Pain Australia and promotes four core aims:
- To de-stigmatise the experience of chronic pain;
- Promote current thinking to explain chronic pain to the wider Australian community;
- Create healing relationships between the person in pain and their pain clinician;
- Reduce the isolation and suffering of people in pain.
At Adelaide Psychological Services, we see clients who suffer from chronic pain and many other issues.
Our psychologists provide evidence based approaches to sufferers of chronic pain. It is beneficial for people with pain to understand the causes and processes associated with chronic pain and our psychologists will provide therapy and explain these processes.
