Chronic Pain Management

Are You in Chronic Pain?


Do you have pain that is now constant or keeps recurring?


  • Have you been in chronic pain so long that you are now reliant on painkillers or worse still, are unable to come off them
  • Are you putting on weight and so putting increased pressure on their body and hitting that cycle of pain, no exercise, increased weight, increased pain, fear of movement and so on
  • Struggle sleeping or getting comfy? We all know pain can affect us mentally – no matter how strong we are. It affects our sleep, relationships, self-esteem and mood

Whilst we know 80% of us will get back pain at some time in our life, 80% of those go on to get recurring back pain. This progressively gets worse until such time when you can’t remember what is was like to be pain free, have a good night’s sleep or get through the day without painkillers.



So what happens? You have an injury or incident. You get the symptoms “fixed” and they subside. Those of you who get that recurring problem then fall into the trap of getting just symptom relief. You get painkillers or soft tissue work, or treatment that deals with your current symptoms – get short term relief and the cycle starts again.

Traditional treatments involve settling down the pain, treating the presenting symptoms – either through medication, allied health care practitioners and then hopefully getting some relief for the client.

What about finding a LONG TERM MANAGEMENT SOLUTION that actually looks at WHAT IS CAUSING the problem and addressing that.

What about fixing the actually underlying problem so the symptoms either become fully managed or recur with less frequency and intensity?


How do we do that?

Results – the core fusion difference

  • Our clients are not coming back to us every 6 weeks with the same problem that has flared up AGAIN
  • We are giving them control of their body and life back
  • We teach them the tools that get long lasting results and create freedom from feeling owned and governed by their pain.

How would it feel to be able to know what to do at home at the right time to be able to self-manage your pain?

How different would your life be if you could get control back, get out and about

In order to achieve that they need to take control – they need some self-management strategies that work.


Most of our clients can get some sort of relief after 1-3 sessions – even after having being in pain for years. Liken it to spending all day bending your finger back – its gonna hurt – and by the end of the day its gonna hurt like hell – what if we then pointed out that’s what you are doing every day with how you stand, how you move, how you function is potentially doing just that – putting constant stress and strain on your tissues, causing you to rely more heavily on some and losing the ability to use or even activate others.

That’s where we can make a BIG difference. A full biomechanical assessment of how you move, function, activate muscle and also how your body in turn reacts –mixed with the traditional measures of what is stiff, tight, weak etc – all moulds together to give a good picture that we can then work with and educate you in a way you can comprehend and understand.

Think of a wheel on a car – uneven wear causes a puncture – fix the puncture but don’t bother with a wheel alignment – you’re gonna have another problem soon.

Fix the puncture and do a wheel alignment and that tyre is good to go for a lot longer before a problem arise.

Teach you how to check that alignment regularly and what to do when it starts to lose it first and you have a winning combination. YOU have control. YOU have their own toolkit and know what to do to make your own adjustments at home.


The core fusion difference

We know a full accurate assessment is key.

Our full assessment takes  a whole hour – we take a complete history, getting an idea what has helped, what hasn’t and why, and also what your expectations are and whether we can meet them so your get what you want out of this.

We look at your movement, function, muscle strength and length, biomechanics, posture, muscle imbalances , core strength and anything that may be relevant such as work posture, stress etc.

We look at you as a whole and manage you that way – that’s how we  deliver results – you are not just a body part with lower back pain on the right –we will assess  how that has a knock on effect – is it a result of an actual loading problem on the left which then causes right sided pain – manage the left and the right side disappears.

Many will have poor posture and poor core strength but also not know what to do about it. We structure our way of working so you work with us to get the best results possible. You will do clinical Pilates for an hour each visit – so we educate and restore movement and function and give you the means to continue with it at home.



Our main aim is to provide information on what we actually do – clinical Pilates is a great tool and service and gets great results – we want to spread the word that it actually works and has lasting long term benefits – and of course you as the client are the main beneficiary. We want you to get better and to offer a long term solution. We thrive on getting you a better night’s sleep, on reduced medication, back to work or sport and back to a healthier more functional life – and breaking that vicious cycle of pain, inactivity, fear of movement and decreased strength.

We work with all manner of clients from the chronic long term back pain to the acutely injured sports man wanting to get back to competition quickly or at a higher performance level.

Of our 3 current physios, 2 hold a masters post grad qualification and we have over 40 years combined experience on board.

If you would like to know more about what we have to offer feel free to contact us. It’s important for us to let you know that there are options out there for those of you who have long term pain. Too many times clients are left in pain because no one knows what to do with them.

We have our main studio in Wanneroo and will start to offer clinical services in our Hillary’s studio in the New Year.

We have an email service designed to provide free content for your benefit – whether it be on fitness, pain, getting active or just general tips and advice that you may find useful.

It may include what kind of treatments and therapy solutions or contra- indications there are for general syndromes and issues clients complain about. Register your interest with us and we would be happy to send you content that hopefully would be of value. If you have any questions or specific requests you can also contact us as below.
