Pain, especially the chronic variety, can turn your life upside down; it can change your personality, affect your emotions, your performance at work and even your interaction with people. This is why the International Association for Study of Pain (IASP) defines pain as "an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience” associated with actual or potential tissue damage, or described in terms of such damage. The explanation covers a whole gamut of physical and emotional responses, which while easily described are often individual in nature. Experts at Burjeel Hospital of Advanced Surgery’s recently launched one-of-a-kind pain management clinic take precisely this scenario into consideration. The clinic uses advanced techniques that don’t just improve a patient’s health and lifestyle but also teaches them how to manage pain before it takes on serious proportions. http://www.al-press.com/index.php/en/2013-02-20-08-59-23/medical-news/5618-burjeel-hospital-for-advanced-surgery-restructures-it-s-highly-advanced-pain-management-clinic-in-dubai "
