Pain Relief Management

MGS physiotherapists across Sydney’s Northern Beaches are dedicated to helping you move easy and live pain-free.

Pain relief and management programs utilise evidence-based physiotherapy techniques to get to the root cause of discomfort and minimise, if not eliminate, ongoing symptoms.

Pain Relief and Management

What is it?

Chronic conditions and disorders

Underlying medical conditions can manifest in the form of symptoms such as sciatica. Pain management programs can help reduce inflammation and therefore ease joint, muscle and nerve pain.

Muscle and ligament damage

Benefit from the latest expertise in exercise therapy. Reduce pain and restore function using therapeutic modalities such as massage, loading exercises and functional training.

Repetitive movement conditions

Repetitive motion disorders such as tendinitis and bursitis can be diagnosed using an ultrasound. Physical therapy exercises can then help to relieve soreness and muscle or joint pain.

Sport and lifestyle injuries

Conditions such as ‘golfer’s elbow’ or ‘tennis elbow’ can be healed using techniques such as tendon massage, manual therapy, iontophoresis, bracing or splinting.

Mindset management

Chronic pain can have a huge impact on a person’s mindset and sense of self. Physiotherapists take an active approach to treatment, empowering the individual to set feasible goals and self-manage their condition.

Pain relief and management programs enable people suffering from chronic or acute pain to lead more comfortable and active lifestyles

Bespoke treatment programs draw on scientifically proven physiotherapy methods to help patients achieve healthy levels of activity. Expert clinicians help chronic pain patients using a multi-faceted approach, taking into consideration both the mental and physical impact of their condition. The aim is to provide a range of self-management techniques which help avoid a reliance on medication or the need for surgical intervention.


Free yourself from the burden and discomfort of ongoing pain.

Physiotherapists are experts capable of identifying the root cause of chronic inflammation as well as designing bespoke treatment plans which will enable you to move, exercise and strengthen your body.


Acupuncture, dry needling, loading exercises, therapeutic ultrasounds and mild electric currents are just some of the therapeutic techniques which can be used. A short period of rest is often advisable but then exercises will be slowly introduced to reduce inflammation. These methods promote chemical change (of both mind and body) to help overcome dysfunction.


Pain is a particularly complex issue which is why a collaborative and tailored approach is required. Your clinician will work with your GP to advise on any medication required. They will also adapt treatment based on pain and mobility levels to help guide you through each stage of the recovery process and towards your health goals.

Post treatment

Your clinician can help educate friends, family and even your workplace in understanding how best to support the condition longer-term if required. You might also benefit from an ongoing partnership with a physiotherapist to help prevent certain acute conditions from developing into chronic pain.

Fighting for your right to good health

At MGS, we believe that everybody has the right to good health. Pain is not a normal part of growing old that you must put up with or accept. Our team is here to help you thrive.

New patients might ask us…

Can I book over the phone?

Yes! You can call find the clinic phone numbers at the very top of the page on a desktop, or in the side menu on a mobile.

You will find our Receptionists very friendly and helpful. They will find a time that suits you and make sure you know where to park, how to get there and where we are.

Do I need a doctor to refer me to you first?

You do not need a referral from a doctor to see a physiotherapist however if you do have one please bring it along. We like to communicate with your doctor and any other practitioners involved in your care.

Will you remind me that I have an appointment with you?

Yes! You will have your appointment confirmed a day or so before by text, email or telephone call – whichever you prefer.

How long will my appointment be?

Appointments are scheduled a minimum of 30 minutes apart. We find that in the majority of cases that this is the most appropriate amount of time. In more complex conditions or for multiple injuries longer appointments can be arranged.

Do I need to bring anything with me?

Yes please! Any investigations or scans relating to the condition will help us understand your presentation better. Even if you just have the reports from scans they will be very helpful. Likewise any notes from other Therapists or doctors would be great. If you don’t have anything then don’t worry just bring yourself.

If you have problems related to walking or sport then please bring your runners or boots in for use to look at.

If you have a WorkCover claim or were injured at work then please bring your claim number. If you do not have a claim number but intend to get one please advise our receptionist when you arrive.

I'm running late!

Our aim is that everyone receives the attention they require and while achieving this we attempt to utilise all of our available time.  If you are running late please call ahead and our Receptionist will check with your physio to see if it is possible to still see you.  There may not be enough time to attend to your needs effectively.  If we rush you through your treatment it is at best not helpful to you and at worst unsafe.  We can simply reschedule your appointment for a later time.
