Beyond Pain, the clinic, was established in 2008 offering specialist physiotherapy services for those suffering with chronic pain. Its success saw us win the inaugural Worksafe Victoria’s Treating Health Practitioner Award in 2011. In 2018, it’s founder and principal practitioner, Anjelo Ratnachandra, was awarded Physiotherapist of the Year by the Australian Allied Health Awards.
Today, it provides a unique consulting service run by founder, Anjelo Ratnachandra, who not only offers individually tailored pain management strategies for our chronic pain clients, but also tailored programs for a wide range of other chronic illnesses including Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS/ME) and Mental Health Disorders (stress, anxiety, depression and adjustment disorders to name a few). He will work with you and your existing practitioners to provide a quality of care that is second to none.
Over 2000 years ago, Aristotle said the “treatment of the part should never be attempted with the treatment of the whole, the error or our ways is the separation of the body from the soul…”
Today, this error is still being made. But we won’t. We get that you are more than just your chronic illness, and that’s why we consider the whole you, not just your symptoms.
Our goal is to help you with your recovery, irrespective of whether you have chronic pain, chronic fatigue, or a mental illness and make you stronger and healthier.
We will teach you all you need to know and what you need to do to get your life back (and be a better you!).
Our experience in managing chronic pain, fatigue, and/or mental illness is that group-based programs can be helpful but are not for everyone. Because we are individuals, it’s important to have individualised programs too.
We take the time to listen to your problems and work with you to see what you want to get back to. Then, together, we develop an appropriate program in consultation with your doctor and/or chronic pain specialist (or your chronic fatigue or mental health specialist), that fits with your lifestyle.
Our clients range from busy CEOs, executives, business owners, doctors and lawyers, to teachers, factory workers, retirees, stay-at-home parents and athletes.
Not only do we care about who you are, we care about how we can help.
I can't thank Anjelo enough for how he helped me after my back surgery I endured a lot of pain for a long time not knowing what to do or who to turn to, I'm very grateful for meeting him because with His guidance and expertise I'm doing so much better I'm able to start back at work and enjoy my life with family and friends.Julie
I feel that in the few sessions I've had with Anjelo, he’s been able to do more for me as an individual person than anyone has been able to do over the last couple of years. The tailored techniques I’m learning from Anjelo are more holistic and about what I can do for me. So thank you for being a different kind of professional, one who is very real and genuinely supportive.Angela
