Latrobe Regional Hospital

Pain Management Clinic

Pain may occur at any life stage. It can appear after injury, surgery or through the nervous system or be associated with chronic disease and conditions like arthritis. Our Pain Management Clinic provides access to a team that will help you manage chronic pain which hasn't responded to usual treatments. 

The clinic aims to help you understand your pain and develop mind and body strategies to manage it. We aim to assist you to develop new thinking, moving and relaxation habits for living with the pain. These may include easing you back into activity without increasing the pain or learning to relax to promote a better quality of life.

Referral process

You may be referred to the clinic by a local GP, Latrobe Regional Hospital, other hospitals or community agencies. Please note we require your GPs support in order to participate in the program.

If you are referring a patient to this service, please contact the Latrobe Regional Hospital Specialist Clinics on 5173 8822. You will be directed to the Pain Management Clinic team.



The program is extensive and initially there is a staged process:

  • Stage 1 - completion of a pain self-assessment questionnaire
  • Stage 2 - full assessment by the Pain Management Clinic team
    • Psychologist
    • Occupational Therapist
    • Physiotherapist
    • Pain Medicine specialist
    • Registered Nurse (if required)
  • Stage 3 – Once these assessments are complete, an individual pain management plan is developed which may include
    • A 10 session group program  involving education and physical activity to help you learn how to manage pain
    • A short series of individual appointments
    • A hydrotherapy program
    • An awareness through movement (Feldenkrais) program
    • Acceptance commitment therapy program (run individually or in a group setting)
  • Stage 4 – Referral back to GP and community practitioners for maintenance.
