Chronic pain is a debilitating problem in Australia, and is one of the most common symptoms for which people seek medical attention.
Pain care is often fragmented, inconsistent and incomplete and it is estimated that 40-60% of patients have inadequate management of their pain.
Emerging care services that tailor care to the individual person with pain, demonstrate superior clinical outcomes. Therefore, Integrative Natural Medicine practitioners are at the forefront of being able to assist you in improving your health outcomes and quality of life. This is because individualised treatment is an overarching philosophy of True Medicine to health care.
Recent research is also highlighting the need to focus on a central model of pain based on active brain processes. Such a shift, to a bio-psychosocial approach to pain management is needed to improve patient outcomes and requires a multimodal approach to intervention. An integrated model of care addresses not only the underlying pathology but also the emotional and cognitive components of chronic pain.
At True Medicine we recognise the importance of multi-modal approach to pain care addressing the physical, emotional and cognitive aspects of pain. As well as prescribing safe and efficacious nutraceutical medicines, we understand co-prescribing considerations with medications and potential contraindications.
Remember, there is always a reason for pain. Without addressing the underlying cause, any relief will only be temporary.
