Pain clinics offer a wide range of treatment options to ensure that anyone suffering from chronic pain has access to management tools and treatments that will work for them regardless of the cause of their symptoms. 

What does a pain clinic do?


A pain clinic is a type of medical facility that provides patients with focused and personalized care for a variety of pain conditions, often including accurate diagnoses and management plans for those with chronic pain. Most pain clinics will have a team of specialists that are comprised of a variety of healthcare professionals, including physicians, nurses, and more specialized therapists who will all work together to provide each patient with a comprehensive treatment plan that is suited to address their specific needs. The specific therapies that are provided may vary a bit from clinic to clinic depending on the experience and expertise of the professionals providing care through the clinic, but every pain clinic will prioritize understanding and addressing every individual patient’s pain concerns. Every pain clinic offers a variety of treatments, therapies, and interventions that are all used to reduce pain and improve the quality of life of each patient. 

Why do people go to pain clinics?


People will typically decide to seek care from a pain clinic because they are suffering from chronic pain, with the exact cause of the pain and associated symptoms varying quite a bit. Pain clinics offer a variety of treatment options that are recommended depending on the individual needs of each patient and specialize in managing chronic pain that may be caused by a variety of health conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, or general back pain. Through multidisciplinary approaches, pain clinics provide patients with comprehensive treatment plans to improve the quality of life for each patient and help them better manage their pain on a long-term basis. 

How do people cope with constant pain?


Chronic pain can be complex and debilitating, quickly taking a toll on the individual’s entire life as the pain interferes with their ability to work, socialize, and relax daily. Many different treatment options are often recommended, some methods working better for some individuals than others, that can be used as part of a comprehensive treatment plan to help patients effectively manage and cope with constant pain. Other than medical treatments, many patients are recommended to find other coping techniques such as learning and practicing relaxation techniques, engaging in physical activity regularly, joining support groups or connecting with loved ones for support, and doing activities from which they find enjoyment such as picking up hobbies. 

Medical treatments that are available to help patients more effectively cope with chronic or constant pain include a variety of pain medications (anti-inflammatory medication, corticosteroids, intravenous medications, and other types of over-the-counter or prescription medication), as well as specific exercises or stretches. Many different procedures are used to treat chronic pain as well, varying depending on what has previously worked or not worked, and ranging in intensity with some patients needing more invasive interventions to achieve significant pain relief. 

What to expect at the first visit to a pain clinic?


Your initial visit to a pain clinic will likely just involve the pain specialist who will be working with you gathering as much information about your health, symptoms, and previous treatments from you to determine an accurate diagnosis that will help them to develop a comprehensive treatment plan. Many different factors contribute to the development of a treatment plan for pain management, including the medical history of the patient, the cause of the pain, the severity of the pain, any other associated symptoms, as well as any other individual needs of the patient. This initial session will likely provide sufficient information to the pain specialist that they will be able to provide you with treatment recommendations, often a variety of options that will be part of a comprehensive treatment plan to not only treat the pain but to prevent the pain from worsening or persisting in the future by also addressing the root cause of the pain or any contributing factors. 

You may receive prescriptions or referrals for other specialists as well that will provide a component of your treatment plan, such as a physical therapist or surgeon following this initial appointment to help get your pain management started.
