When you are in pain it can affect all aspects of your life: work, exercise and many of your everyday activities. We all deserve to live life to the fullest and not have pain or injury hold us back.

At Renew Physio & Yoga we will assist you in getting to the bottom of your pain, help you achieve your health goals and create a sustainable program returning you to living the life you want to live.

We work closely with our clients in not only the Coorparoo area but in all surrounding suburbs. We also work closely with doctors, employers, insurers and other health professionals involved in your care when it is needed.

We can provide relevant and tailored treatment based on the ever-changing needs of your body. We understand that the assessment and treatment needed for each person is different.

Pain Management

At Renew Physio & Yoga, we understand there is a big difference between treating and managing acute vs chronic or persistent pain.

Pain is defined as being chronic or persistent if you have had pain for longer than three months or the pain you are experiencing exceeds what you would normally expect to experience from your underlying pathology.

Our Principal Physiotherapist, Melissa Clark, has had more than 20 years’ experience in the area of treating and managing Chronic Pain.

We take a bio-psycho-social approach to identifying contributing factors to your persistent pain condition and developing an appropriate treatment approach. We work in conjunction with your doctor and other health professionals involved in your case, to create a pain management plan that’s right for you.

Melissa’s experience includes working at the Wesley Pain Management Service and currently consults at Greenslopes Private Hospital in the IMPACT Pain Management Program.
