Supporting chronic pain sufferers
We are silver sponsors of the Pain Revolution, a movement led by some of Australia's leading pain scientists and clinicians.
One in five Australians suffer from persistent pain, with a high proportion of sufferers living in rural areas. A Melbourne to Adelaide bike ride raises funds to establish a support network of local pain educators in these areas. Scientists, physicians, physiotherapists and GPs cycle the route, stopping at rural centres to discuss the challenges faced by local clinicians and communities when dealing with chronic pain.
Persistent pain research
Pain Revolution is the brainchild of Professor Lorimer Moseley from the University of South Australia.
Lorimer is one of the world’s most respected pain scientists, known for his commitment to educating others. His landmark work on the role of the brain and mind in persistent pain have led to prestigious prizes on every continent.
