About Our Practice

We run a multi-disciplinary practice focussed on the biopsychosocial model of musculoskeletal medicine and pain care. We incorporate mindfulness based interventions with patient education to provide a wholistic approach to our patients care. We can also provide skype and face time support and have an online program to help patients recover from ongoing pain at drnickpenney.com . My doctoral research at The Centre for National Research on Disability and Rehabilitation Medicine at the University of Queensland focussed on obstacles to recovery from low back pain. The obstacles are well known now to be mostly psychosocial, the 'whats going on' in our lives being highly predictive of outcome, with low back pain contributing more than half of all persistent pain problems. With the growing understanding that opiate based medications are not often helpful for the long term management of ongoing pain there is an increasing interest in mindfulness based intervention. Dr Nick Penney is also trained to teach mindfulness based cognitive therapy which has been shown to be very helpful in persistent pain problems
