What is Pain Management?

Pain management is the comprehensive approach to alleviating discomfort, be it acute or chronic, through various medical and therapeutic strategies. This specialised field includes a wide range of treatments aimed not only at addressing the physical aspects of pain but also at improving one’s general state of life. Pain management entails a customised combination of medical therapies, lifestyle changes, and psychological support to help people reclaim control of their lives and live more comfortably.

Benefits of Advanced Pain Management

Our advanced pain management services offer benefits that promise a renewed sense of vitality and relief for individuals dealing with pain-related challenges. Here’s a glimpse into the advantages our approach brings:

  • Tailored Treatment Plans: Each individual’s capacity to deal with pain is different. Therefore, a personalised treatment strategy is required that addresses their specific needs.

  • Enhanced Well-being: Through effective pain control, individuals can experience a significant improvement in their overall quality of life.

  • Minimised Reliance on Medication: Our holistic approach aims to reduce dependence on medication and help focus on long-term solutions.

  • Restored Functionality: Pain can hinder daily activities; our methods target the restoration of functional abilities, promoting independence.

  • Psychological Resilience: Chronic pain often takes a toll on mental health as well; these proven strategies include psychological support to build resilience.

  • Use of Tradition Techniques: One such technique is acupuncture, an integral part of traditional Chinese medicine. By delicately placing thin needles at specific points on the body, acupuncture stimulates the body’s natural healing mechanisms. Moreover, it promotes pain relief and restores balance within the body.

Persistent pain can take away even the simplest joys of life. Our chronic pain management is here to help alleviate this discomfort. With extensive experience, we are using an approach that includes natural methods while limiting medication intake.

    Common Pain Management Methods We Use

    Through a fusion of expert knowledge and empathetic care, we ensure that our chronic pain management strategies are beneficial to our patients. Not only these treatments are effective but also personalised to provide optimal relief and healing. Here are the methods that constitute our holistic approach.

    • Acupuncture

      Acupuncture is a very popular ancient practice that is rooted in traditional Chinese medicine. We delicately place fine needles at specific points along the body’s meridians. That way, we tap into the body’s innate capacity to regulate pain and promote healing. This technique, backed by centuries of improvement, offers a natural and well-established path to body pain relief. Many patients often experience a sense of restoration and balance from acupuncture through the guidance of skilled practitioners.

    • Traditional Chinese Medicine

      Our Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), forms a comprehensive approach to pain management within our scope of care. It includes techniques such as herbal remedies, cupping therapy, massages and exercises. TCM is based on the philosophy that the human body must be in harmony with nature and the universe. It says that any disruption of this balance can result in sickness.

    By integrating these techniques into our pain treatment plans, we create a harmony that addresses pain on multiple levels. It helps us to bring balance to the body’s energy channels and boost its innate ability to heal. Through a perfect blend of time-tested techniques and effective natural medicine, we form a path to pain relief.

    My migraines started 6 years ago, November 2016. I had a minimum of two migraines a week. Then September and October 2022 I started getting them every day. I have been to many doctors, done scans and taken beta blockers for the past three years, no improvement. My condition was making me anxious and depressed. I would just wake up and swallow migraine tablets to get by. That is why I thought I would try acupuncture. I wish I found Dr Dennis earlier. I cannot thank him enough. I saw improvements from my first visit. He is truly skilled in his profession and is genuinely dedicated to improve your health. I still go once a week for another condition I have, but I can honestly say in these past three months I have only had the occasional mild headache. Thank you, Dr Dennis for giving me my life back.

    Dennis is the main acupuncturist at this clinic and he is professional, soft-spoken and his acupuncture skills are amazing! He has helped me greatly with my chronic right shoulder pain with just a few sessions, and where other acupuncturists had failed to do. His method is accurate, painless, and efficacious. I would not hesitate to recommend Dennis to anyone seeking relief from chronic aches and pains!

    I have had acupuncture as a matter of course for forty years and believe Dr Dennis Quach is the most skilful practitioner I have consulted. Dr Dennis is a highly qualified and skilled specialist with an wholistic approach to pain management, reducing the adverse effects of misplaced lifestyle choices and, age related conditions. His approach is modern, without discomfort and much improvement is achieved in a small amount of time. He is dedicated to helping his patients achieve relief from pain and also, achieve their health goals through providing the highest standard of treatment and advice. His rooms are spotlessly clean, scrupulous care is taken with procedures and COVID precautions are applied. I recommend Dr Dennis wholeheartedly.

    Dr. Dennis is simply amazing and I highly recommend him! 💯👌🏼😉 I had a terrible unbalance in my digest system, I would not stop burping day and night, everything I eat was just bad to my tummy. Did food allergy and intolerance tests, every GP would just give me tablets and never fixed the root or cause of the issue. After 2 years of not seeing results I was rapidly loosing weight and heading towards depression 😢 My social life was also affected as I couldn’t go out on casual dinners with friends.💔 I found Dr. Dennis on Google search and it was like a sing from heaven 🙌🏼 he was my last shot at my gut health. I saw him twice a week for 3 months and with a combination treatment of Acupunture, Chinese medicine and a veggie diet, I slowly but shortly started feeling changes in my digestion. We started to gradually incorporate different types of veggies, fruits and meet; until one day I just realised I was eating normal and feeling myself again! 😃 It is been 2 months now since my treatment finished and I still keep a healthy diet as suggested by Dr Dennis, but have not had any issues since. So much gratitude and blessings to Dr. Dennis! You are a true Healing Angel on Earth! Thank you! 💙 Erica

    I commenced treatment with Dr Dennis six weeks ago. The improvement in my flexibility is a welcome surprise. The pain relief was measurable after two weeks. I will continue these appointments and will be forever grateful for Dr. Dennis's knowledge. Five stars and then some.
