The painful truth in Australia

— 1 in 5 Australian adults live with persistent pain

— Up to 8 in 10 people living with persistent pain miss out on effective treatment

— Fewer than 1 in 10 people living with persistent pain have access to effective pain services

— Pain is expensive, costing about $34 billion in 2007.

— As Australia’s population ages, the magnitude of the burden of chronic pain will rise

PRIDE Physiotherapy is proud to be a part of the Gold Coast Primary Health Network ‘Turning PAIN into GAIN’ Program which aims to help persistent pain suffers become better managers of their pain.
