Are You Exhausted From Your Constant Fight With Persisting Pain? You’re Not Alone.
For most Australians, the pain they feel after an injury or surgery fades after about three months. For one in five of us, however, the pain never truly goes away and sometimes grows worse despite a lack of complications. Your injury is healing, but you’re still hurting, and you’re not sure why.
Our primary mission at RehWork has been to discover the causes of persisting pain, then utilize the latest research to come up with tools to overcome it. You’ll find an entirely new way to deal with your pain when you come to us for your persisting pain rehabilitation.
Musculoskeletal pain is pain you feel in either your bones or muscles. It could be a constant twinge in your knee that bugs the heck out of you at the most inopportune times; it could be that constant soreness in your lower back that you’ve convinced yourself will never go away; it could be pain that’s completely unrelated to an injury or surgery, yet it plagues you every day without respite. These are examples of persistent musculoskeletal pain. No doubt you could add to this with an example of your own.
The real damage this pain does is not to your body; it’s to your quality of life as you start to avoid activities you used to love doing because they simply aren’t worth the pain you’ll endure.
It hurts to pick up the dog; it hurts to pick up your kid; bending over is a trial in itself; walking more than a few feet is a chore. You start to wonder: “Is this what I’m in for for the rest of my life? Is there an end in sight?”
If this goes on for long enough, you can begin to come to the conclusion that it’s never going to get better, and this can lead to depression and still increased sensitivity to pain. It sure doesn’t help when the treatments you’re prescribed don’t actually improve the situation. Sometimes, they even make it worse.
But if you’re reading this now, and you’re suffering from persisting pain, there’s a whole lot of reason for optimism, because we’ve helped probably thousands of people like you in the last x years.
Do you really think your pain is so stubborn that it can stand up to our multi-pronged approach without giving an inch? Not a chance.

What To Expect
We take a long-term approach to treating your pain. This means you’ll need to follow a plan that you create along with our team.
As you follow this plan, you’re going to start to feel the results. Many times, it’s so gradual that you don’t notice it right away. But anyone who’s living with you will. You’ll probably do a double take when they bring it to your attention: “Wow, I did just bend over and pet the dog.”
Little by little, you’ll get back to those activities you got away from, until you achieve the goal you set at the beginning of your treatment. In most cases, your pain doesn’t completely disappear. Rather, you control it rather than the other way around.
The bottom line, though, is that when you complete your rehabilitation, you’ll have taken control and regained the quality of life you once had, and it’ll be even sweeter the second time around because you’ll appreciate even more what you’re able to do. And you’ll know that you didn’t take shortcuts to get there; you fought and fought, and at last, you won!
