If you have a condition that causes chronic pain, you may be trying to manage it with painkillers. These medications can, however, have serious side effects, including dependency. A referral to a pain care clinic can help to ensure that you are taking the correct types of pain medication in the right combination and dosages.

Pain care clinics in Ontario also offer several medical options to people with arthritis, migraine headaches, fibromyalgia, and other chronic conditions. Specialists may recommend therapies such as nerve blocks to anaesthetize groups of nerves; platelet-rich plasma therapy to promote healing; Botox® injections to reduce the frequency and intensity of migraines; epidural injections to combat spinal pain or trigger-point injections of anti-inflammatory medication.

Ask your doctor for a referral to one of Ontario’s excellent pain care clinics and ensure that you are doing everything possible to manage your chronic pain.

Types of Treatment for Chronic Pain

 
Experts in pain care are extremely knowledgeable about treatments for various types of chronic pain. If you suffer from chronic pain, be sure to consult with a specialist at a pain care clinic to learn more about your situation. Here are some of the treatments that may be available to you:
  • Medication review and recommendations. Doctors specializing in pain care have an encyclopedic knowledge of the types of medications available for treating all types of pain. They may also be able to recommend other medications, such as muscle relaxants, anti-depressants, or sleeping aids that will work in combination with painkillers to significantly reduce your level of discomfort.
  • Botox injections for migraine. It’s estimated that one in four Canadian households contains a migraine sufferer. If you are one of them, and if these severe headaches occur more than fifteen times per month, you are classified as a chronic migraine sufferer. This designation makes you eligible for a round of Botox® injections that may significantly decrease the frequency, duration, and severity of your headaches.
  • Nerve blocks. Nerve blocks work on groups of nerves to anaesthetize, reduce swelling, or create damage in order to stop them from sending pain signals to the brain. Nerve blocks can be effective for all types of injuries and conditions.
  • Platelet-rich plasma therapy. Sometimes soft-tissue injuries resist healing and cause pain. PRP therapy sends high concentrations of healing platelets to the affected site, providing pain relief and jump-starting the healing process.
  • Epidural injections. Spinal injuries can continue to cause pain long after the initial damage. Injecting an anti-inflammatory into the epidural space allows the medication to coat nerves up and down the spinal column.
These and many other medical strategies and therapies may be a good option for treating your chronic pain. Talk to the experts at a pain care clinic to learn more.
