Pain Management

Chronic pain can affect your whole life: your ability to work, to be active, your relationships, and your feelings. Therefore, a full and active life may seem an impossible dream. When chronic pain does not improve with standard treatments, our Pain Clinic may provide with a total relief. The sooner you seek treatment the sooner you can regain your active life again

Pain

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.

This definition of pain allows us to understand that pain is not only a sensory experience but also an emotion that can affect quality of life.

What is Chronic Pain?

Chronic pain is a persistent pain signal that keeps firing in the nervous systems for more than 6 months. It causes people to withdraw into a downward spiral of anger, depression and despair.

We Help You Get Back to Normal Life

Being one of its kind in the Middle East, our Pain Clinic provides safe, proven, effective treatments, diagnosis and management of chronic pain aimed at helping people with chronic pain return to a normal and active lifestyle.

We Work as a Team

At Pain Clinic, we adopt a multidisciplinary team approach to the evaluation and treatment of pain. A team of world-class experts closely coordinates with each other to design a variety of strategies to manage your pain. Our highly skilled Anesthesiologist, Interventional pain management physician, Neurologist, Rheumatologist, Physiotherapist, and Nutritionist use cutting-edge technology to provide compassionate and holistic plans to eliminate or reduce pain, promote coping strategies, and improve function and the quality of life.

Personalized Care

We offer personalized diagnosis and treatment plan based on the patient's medical history, physical examination and specialized studies, enabling us to treat each patient with unique therapies tailored for their specific needs.

What We Expect from Our Patients?

We expect from our patients to be true to themselves and show a strong desire to get back to the normal life. Also, they should be highly motivated to make positive changes in their life to reduce pain. They should be open to discover all factors that cause pain. Moreover, they should understand that improvement is not something we provide, but something we help them achieve. They should not wait for our any opioid prescription rather they should be willing to take the first step. Furthermore, they should not hide any relevant information that could be a useful source for diagnosing the right treatment.
