Chronic, Recurring or Acute Pain Treatment – Brisbane

Chronic or recurring pain can affect all aspects of your life and lifestyle. Wherever your pain is, you slowly stop doing the things you like and then the things you need to do. Chronic pain causes your body to move in ways which may cause further problems elsewhere and so the process goes on.
You need to break the pain cycle.

At Pondera, our Physiotherapists use the initial appointments to take a thorough history, assess your movement quality and range, diagnose the probable source of your muscular pain or problem and form a suitable treatment plan. We use a combination of manual therapy & exercise programming to enhance joint movement and retrain muscle patterns to maintain permanent improvement. All Physiotherapy sessions are one-on-one, no running from patient to patient or leaving you wondering what to do next.

Chronic pain problems are often associated with a broader range of general health and lifestyle concerns. If your situation demands it, we will use our wide network of fellow health professionals to work in conjunction with us or give a second opinion. Our physiotherapists will guide you to the best combination of manual treatment, home exercises, supervised studio exercises, strength training and fitness plans.

We can help understand and manage your pain, get rid of it when we can and get back to the lifestyle you are hoping for.



Acute injuries, sport, dance of just day to day life, need quick accurate diagnosis and a treatment plan. Far too often we see people with pain of long duration and the common line of “I thought it would just get better!” Pondera staff have extensive experience in dealing with acute injuries. Our work with elite sporting and performing arts personnel demands accurate diagnosis and a realistic plan to return to the demands of performance. Your performance may be just being able to get to work to continue to earn your income or make sure you enjoy your upcoming vacation. No matter the person or injury we deliver individual care for every body.

The most important first step is to obtain an accurate diagnosis and understand your injury. Setting your realistic expectations for recovery time and functional restrictions is vital to ensure complete healing.

Often without a particular incident, common acute pains that can turn into long term problems are ‘tennis elbow’, mid back pain when turning or breathing, sharp shoulder pain when lifting your arm and an acute wry neck.
