Clinical work

Pain Management Service offers individualised care for people with musculoskeletal, neuropathic, chronic or cancer-related pain. Our team provides a comprehensive approach to diagnosing, treating and relieving pain through a combination of minimally invasive interventional, pharmacological, and rehabilitative approaches. We work together to offer treatment plans tailored to each individual patient’s needs with the aim of reducing or eliminating pain and enabling patients to achieve the highest possible level of function.

 

Medication

There are 200+ different medications that are used for the treatment of different pain conditions. Usually, your neurologist, GP or surgeon have already initiated pharmacotherapy in order to help with your symptoms. At first appointment your medications will be optimised in order to provide you with optimal analgesic regime and minimise any potential side-effects.
