Chronic Pain Program at our Clinics in Toronto and Scarborough
Who Requires a Chronic Pain Program?
Our chronic pain program in Toronto is classically required for patients who have completed most types of therapy without having success and are usually diagnosed with “Chronic Pain Syndrome”.
In order to to classify yourself as a chronic patient, generally, your symptoms must have persisted for more than 3-6 months, or your pain lasted longer than expected after an injury or illness.
For a client who would undergo a chronic pain program, there may also be psychological and emotional issues caused from the injuries acquired. This could involve fear of movement, pain worsening, mood disturbances, psychological problems and employment issues.
At this point in rehabilitative therapy, this type of patient will be referred to a pain specialist that will request much stronger treatments of therapy. This may include:
- Nerve Blocks Injections
- Aqua Therapy
- Cortisone Injections
- Possibly Surgery
