petersmall1Mr Peter Gregory
General Board Director 

Peter has been living with pain since age three when he suffered neck and lower back injuries in a motor vehicle accident. A second accident in 1985 caused further whiplash injuries and Peter has been out of work on a disability pension since 2002. Before he left work, Peter was in the food industry, mainly in quality assurance and control, and also worked as a meat inspector for the WA Government Health Dept and the Australian Quarantine Inspection Service. Peter has spent a long time searching for answers regarding his chronic pain and in 2006 he found relief when he was put in touch with the Fremantle Hospital Pain Clinic. Since then he has been self-managing his chronic pain with moderate success, using the STEPS program as a refresher, which he attended in 2010. Peter is an administrator of the online pain forum, supports our 2 volunteer forum moderators as well as monitors our national office email address.
