Explain Pain

 

 

Butler and Moseley's Explain Pain kicked off a revolution in therapeutic neuroscience education and has become the go to pain bible for clinicians and sufferers alike. Explain Pain is an exciting new perspective on pain that, by understanding it, can actually change our experience of pain, especially chronic pain. 

Dr Adele trained in Explain Pain under David Butler and gave a very well received talk to practice patients in January 2020 which she has now made into a series of four Powerpoint with audio modules.

Dr Adele has an interest in the psychological aspects of chronic pain and is very happy to see patients for lindividually tailored long appointments. She has a particular interest in Chronic Pelvic Pain.

Making an Explain Pain appointment: 

It is strongly recommended that prior to making an appointment for an Explain Pain consultation that you gradually work your way through the modules and take notes about what is applicable to you in particular and any questions that might come up. 

Please make a 45 minute appointment with Dr Adele Stewart for an initial Explain Pain consultation. Up to four sessions are often required. Costs will vary but the out of pocket cost is around $43 ($20 for card holder/pensioners) per consultation.
