My Story

Persistent pain is a massive problem. Although it is the most common reason people seek medical help, it is one of the most misunderstood areas in healthcare. One in five Australians (including children and adolescents) experience pain that lasts more than 3 months. I am a paediatric physiotherapist working at the Royal Hobart Hospital and I frequently work with children in pain. Persistent pain interferes with schooling, socialising with friends, participating in sport and leisure activities and can rob children of their main occupation…to play and have fun.

What am I doing about it?
I have joined the Pain Revolution. I will be cycling 870 km from Melbourne to Adelaide with other health professionals passionate about reducing persistent pain in our community. In the process we hope to raise awareness, share what we already know about persistent pain to rural communities along the way, and meet people who will share their pain stories.

What can you do about it?
Help me raise $3000 going directly to fund vital research into persistent pain.

To find out more, go to http://painrevolution.org and follow me on Strava to make sure I'm putting in the kilometres and growing quads the size of Richie Porte.

Thank You
