Pain Specialists Australia (PSA) are leaders in the field of advanced pain management and operate one of the leading pain clinics in Melbourne Victoria. Formed in 2012 by Dr Nick Christelis, together with Matt Margach (CEO) and David Burlew (Chairman), they believe no one should suffer from pain. Their dedicated multidisciplinary team of Pain Specialists, Psychiatrists, Nurses, Occupational Therapists, Psychologists, Dieticians, Rehabilitation Physicians, and Physiotherapists aim to provide a holistic approach to pain management – ‘The right treatment, for the right person at the right time’. Embracing a “patient focused service” ensures from the moment a patient walks into the practice, they are the focus of attention.
One in five Australians will suffer chronic pain at some point in their lives but only 20% will have access to treatment that could substantially improve their health and quality of life. Due the physical, emotional and financial impact that pain has on the population, it is increasingly important to heighten awareness and clinical effectiveness of treatment.
The team at PSA understand that effective pain management is a unique process and can sometimes be a long journey for patients and their families. At PSA patients are empowered to have an active role in their pain care, whilst simultaneously supported by the use of cutting edge medical care and a team of experts.
