Pain management

What is it?

Pain is complex and often a way of our body telling us that something is wrong. There are different types of pain which are generally defined as being either acute or chronic. Acute pain can occur as a result of an injury, illness or medical procedure. Chronic pain is ongoing pain usually lasting for six months or more.

We can often still suffer from pain, even after the source problem has been treated. This can be debilitating, because pain can stop us from leading normal active lives and if left untreated, can also lead to psychological symptoms.

Diagnosis and treatment options

The type of treatment you receive will depend on your symptoms. Our pain management specialist will do a full assessment of your condition and give you an expert opinion.

We provide a wide range of treatment options and pain management techniques, from pain relieving medication, injections and nerve blocks to physiotherapy and occupational therapy.
