Private Pain Management Consultations
At AFS Friendly Pharmacy we offer a complimentary 15 minute private pain management consultation to all of our customers. This consultation allows you to discuss your pain concerns with our pharmacist who can then provide some tailored pain relief options to suit your needs.
At the consultation our pharmacist will ask you a series of questions to ascertain your level of pain and to determine the main cause. They will also ask questions about any medications you are currently taking to relieve the pain as well as your medical history. From there, they will be able to provide you with some steps to take so you can go back to being pain free. These steps may include a referral to other health professionals including your GP, a physiotherapist, exercise physiologist, occupational therapist and/or dietician.
