Mates4Mates Persistent Pain Program

  • Are you a veteran impacted by their service who is living with chronic pain?
  • Do you want to self-manage your pain through exercise and wellbeing?
  • Are you wanting to become more educated around your pain?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then our Persistent Pain Program might be for you.

What is the Persistent Pain Program?

Developed by Mates4Mates, the Persistent Pain Program is designed by our Exercise Physiologists and Psychologists to help veterans gain a better understanding and greater confidence in managing their chronic pain.

Across six weeks, the program will provide veterans with an understanding of the impacts that pain can have on their physical and psychological wellbeing and strategies their can implement to manage their pain.

Plus, learn how to increase functional capacity with exercise and how to implement strategies to increase overall quality of life.

Upcoming Programs


Our next program will run at the Mates4Mates Townsville Centre, every Thursday, starting 25 February to 21 March 2024, from 9:00am to 3:00pm.

Veterans who are interested in participating in the Persistent Pain Program will need to undertake an expression of interest (EOI) process. This EOI includes a clinical screening to ensure this program is suitable for you.
