In the pain management clinic, we provide a multidisciplinary assessment and treatment to patients experiencing acute or chronic pain related to a wide variety of medical issues or physical injuries.
Chronic pain is a complex medical problem. When untreated, it may lead to physical impairment and mental suffering with psychological, social and emotional consequences. Our goal in the pain management clinic is to evaluate/diagnose your condition and develop a plan to reduce the pain, to restore function and to improve the quality of life.
The multimodal approach which consists of using many treatment modalities from one or more clinical disciplines ( as orthopedics , spine surgeons, rheumatologists, oncologists and physiotherapists) has been proven to be efficacious in reducing pain and improving function.
A variety of approaches and modalities may be used to treat the pain including the usual conservative treatment options such as various classes of medications in addition to many interventional pain management techniques along with Physical, psychological and behavioral therapies.
