What Is a Pain Clinic?

A pain clinic or a pain management clinic is a health care facility that focuses on the diagnosis and management of chronic pain. Whereas some chronic pain clinics focus on specific types of pain such as neck or back pains, others are run by multidisciplinary teams that include:

  • Pain doctors.
  • Nurses.
  • Physiotherapists.
  • Psychotherapists.
  • Occupational therapists.
  • Nutritionists and dietitians.

The goal of pain management is to improve the quality of life for the patient through:

  • Conventional pain medication.
  • Physiotherapy.
  • Psychotherapy.
  • Alternative therapies
    • Biofeedback.
    • Acupuncture.
    • Massage.
    • Meditation and mindfulness.
