APM understands the amount of pain you feel after an injury doesn’t always match the severity of what you experienced

Our team of experts deliver Pain Management Services on behalf of ACC.

We know dealing with pain can be a complex process and often needs more than one treatment solution.

When you’re referred to APM, we work with you to develop a personalised action plan including education, treatment and self-management strategies to address your specific pain needs.

We start with a detailed pain assessment to understand your circumstances and set suitable goals.

Our aim is to reduce the severity and impact of the pain you suffer by making sure you get the right treatment, rehabilitation support and determine if other health or lifestyle adjustments will help.

Your dedicated APM consultant will give you a coordinated, comprehensive service so you have a simple, easy to follow approach to your pain management.

If you’re experiencing pain following an injury or illness, ask your ACC case manager for a referral to APM today.

Managing pain isn’t easy, so we make sure your personalised plan is simple and easy to follow

We use a biopsychosocial model to assess, plan and manage your service.

This means we don’t just look at the physical symptoms of your pain, but other health and personal factors of your day to day life as well.

By getting to know as much about your as possible we can help you live a better life. This includes talking to you about: 

  • your symptoms and state of pain
  • any relevant medical history
  • likely causes of your pain
  • other factors which may influence your pain
  • current medication and its effectiveness
  • your recovery goals
  • any barriers to your recovery
