A pain clinic is a health care facility that focuses on the diagnosis and management of chronic pain. Some specialize in specific diagnoses or in pain related to a specific region of the body. Also called pain management clinics, pain clinics often use a multidisciplinary approach to help people take an active role in managing their pain and regaining control of their life. These programs are focused on the total person, not just the pain.
We are likely to include doctors of different specialties as well as non-physician providers specializing in the diagnosis and management of chronic pain. We may include psychologists, physical therapists, and complementary and alternative therapists such as acupuncturists or massage therapists. Together, we will put together a pain management plan for you.
