Oatley business Take Control Active Rehab, led by physiotherapist Trish Wisby-Roth, has donated thousands of dollars to support a new national initiative in treating chronic pain.
The initiative, Pain Revolution, is an education program led by Professor Lorimer Moseley from the University of South Australia.
A group of 23 riders – pain researchers and clinicians, set off from Cronulla this month for an outreach cycle tour, making their way through the Royal National Park and towards Wollongong, Nowra, Canberra, Cooma and Albury-Wononga.
The ride is an annual fundraising event that aims to bring community-based help and education to people in rural areas.
They are on a mission to bring the science of persisting pain and the brain to rural Australia.
The business is also helping to set up a network of local pain educators in regional and rural areas.
