HOW WE CAN HELP PRACTITIONERS
The Sydney Pain Management Centre can help anyone to reduce and manage their complex pain. Often patients are sent to SPMC after many attempts to address their pain, including various medications. Opioid use is becoming a problem for Australia and for GP’s prescribing. The collective at SPMC are here to help and will ensure we look at alternative options to help patients, with reducing medications as a key goal. We aim to provide advanced and evidence – based treatments tailored to suit each patient.
