The Chronic Pain Program provides outcomes-focused, coordinated, goal-oriented interdisciplinary team services. The program can benefit persons with impairments associated with pain that impacts their activity and participation. Our multidisciplinary team of healthcare providers includes chronic pain doctors, orthopaedic/sport medicine doctors, physiotherapists, chiropractors, occupational therapists, psychologists. Interdisciplinary therapy protocols focused on functional restoration, self-management and cognitive behaviour show clinically significant improvements in the following outcomes: pain levels, activity levels, psychological functioning, return to work, healthcare utilization, and reduction in opioid medication use.
Interventional Medicine is a part of our Chronic Pain Program. We perform ultrasound guided injections such as Hyaluronic Acid, Plate-Rich Plasma and many more. Frequent monitoring is also important to ensure that problems are identified and treated early before they escalate. Proper management of a healthy lifestyle, along with these other measures can improve quality of life.
