Treatments

Pain Medicine Specialists utilise a broad range of treatments which include, but are not limited to:

  • Pharmacological: analgesics along with a range of other co-analgesic and adjuvant medication used for treating a wide variety of nociceptive, neuropathic, visceral and other long-term pain syndromes. Click HERE for more information. 

  • Analgesia: Pain Medicine Specialists may prescribe a combination of analgesics including specialist medications focused on pain caused by nerve injury. Unfortunately for some patients with chronic pain analgesia may have little or no effect and so medication may also be reduced and stopped to prevent harm.

  • Interventional techniques: Pain Medicine Specialists may perform injection into muscles, joints, the spine and around nerves to temporarily relieve pain as part of a wider strategy to manage the effect of a patient’s pain on their ability to function. Pain Medicine Specialists may also train to implant pain–relieving devices into selected patients for a small group of chronic pain conditions (e.g. spinal cord stimulation and implanted spinal drug delivery systems).

  • Physical therapy: physiotherapy and occupational therapy designed to build strength and flexibility, improve mobility and reduce disability. 

  • Psychological therapy: ranging from individual and group based support and education sessions through to hospital based psychological therapy. This is designed to reduce the impact of the pain on an individual’s mood, well being and social interactions.
