Chronic Pain

About Chronic Pain

“When all you know is pain you don’t know that that is not normal.” – Susan Sarandon

The problem with chronic pain is it is so easy to become accustomed to it. There are many people who live with pain unnecessarily. At first it may be agonising, but after a while your body will work out ways to avoid it. You become accustomed to your limp, your inability to perform certain tasks and the chronic pain slowly robs you of your life.

While there are many causes of chronic pain the podiatrists at Posture Podiatry understand that the body is trying its best to function without pain, but is falling short of what it really needs to do.

The podiatrists at Posture podiatry use simple, effective techniques and devices to encourage the body to effectively manage daily demands and increase its capacity to do more. With thorough, personalised, individual assessment and treatment the pain that has been there for a long time may yet be a thing of the past.

If you have any questions about your pain, please feel free to call us to speak with one of the podiatrists at Posture Podiatry and see how we may be able to help you.
