Welcome

PainScience™ is a dynamic private pain medicine practice located at Joondalup Health Campus, Western Australia.

We provide a team-based approach to helping persons manage their pain.

Our pain management team includes specialist doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, exercise physiologists and psychologists.

Keeping you comfortable
