PERTH Brain Cen­tre is of­fer­ing a new ap­proach to chronic pain.

While many Aus­tralians suf­fer from chronic pain, not every­one has ac­cess to ef­fec­tive treat­ment.

Chronic pain can be caused by prob­lems like arthri­tis or an in­jury, but can also have no ob­vi­ous cause.

“How­ever, ad­vances in science over the past decade have led ex­perts to un­der­stand that chronic pain can be caused by un­help­ful changes in the brain, known as mal­adap­tive plas­tic­ity,” Perth Brain Cen­tre clin­i­cal di­rec­tor Daniel Lane said.

For more in­for­ma­tion on how brain-based ther­a­pies can help you, call the Cen­tre on 6500 3277 or visit www. perth­brain­cen­
