Chronic Pain Clinics in Mississauga

 
Many Ontarians have conditions that force them to live with chronic pain. Arthritis, fibromyalgia, neuropathy, spinal injury, migraine headaches, sciatica, and many other conditions can cause debilitating, daily pain. If you suffer from chronic pain, you may find that your quality of life is severely affected. Many Canadians with chronic pain are unable to work, for example, and some require assistance to do simple household tasks. Living with pain can also take an enormous toll on family life and relationships.
 

What Pain Care Clinics Do

 
Fortunately for GTA residents, there are clinics that specialize in treating pain in Mississauga, Oakville, and other area locations. These clinics offer a variety of services, including the following:
  • Assessment. Doctors at pain care clinics will first assess your condition and current treatment plan. Before you arrive for your first appointment, you will probably be asked to fill out a comprehensive health questionnaire. At the clinic, specialists will do a medical workup and assess the location, intensity, and frequency of your pain. They will also take stock of your current pain medications and any other pharmaceuticals that may be interacting with them.
  • Medication Recommendation. Because doctors at pain care clinics have an encyclopaedic and up-to-date knowledge of all kinds of pain medication available, they may recommend different drugs or different dosages to treat your pain. Sometimes a particular combination of medications will be more effective, or a change in medications will alleviate frustrating side effects.
  • Botox® Treatment. People who are deemed to be chronic migraine sufferers may find relief when treated with a course of Botox® injections. Ask your doctor whether you qualify for this treatment.
  • Nerve Blocks. Various types of nerve blocks can be effective when dealing with localized pain. These include intercostal nerve blocks, commonly performed to deal with shingles pain; lumber sympathetic nerve blocks, often used to alleviate the pain of CRPS, or complex regional pain syndrome; facet nerve blocks to deal with neck or lower back pain; stellate ganglion blocks for nerve injuries or circulation problems; celiac plexus blocks for abdominal pain; and other types of therapeutic nerve blocks targeting specific areas.
  • Epidural Injections. Injecting anaesthetic and anti-inflammatory medication into the epidural space can help to alleviate persistent back pain.
  • Trigger Point Injections. For conditions like fibromyalgia, an injection of anaesthetic and anti-inflammatory drugs at the trigger point of the pain can be very effective.
  • Platelet-Rich Plasma Treatment. When soft tissue is injured, the body’s response is to send platelets to the site. This therapy uses a centrifuge to remove platelets from the patient’s own blood, then injects them in high concentrations at the injury site to promote healing.
  • Mesotherapy and Biopuncture. These treatments, which involve placing anaesthetics, botanicals, and vitamins under the skin next to pain zones are used to promote healing for patients suffering from conditions such as chronic neck pain, whiplash, chronic back pain, sciatica, arthritis, muscle spasm, tendinitis, bursitis, tennis and golfer’s elbow, and fibromyalgia.
