Why to treat in an interdisciplinary pain clinic?
For the integrity of the treatment, because the interdisciplinary team respects and addresses all the aspects relatd to the pain experience. We value the integrative work. We see our patients as a whole and our goal is not just relieving pain, but to promote health and to improve quality of life of people.
The Pain Management Program in our pain center is individualized and can include interventional pain procedures, physiotherapy, pain education, orientation and medication review, psychological assessment, acupuncture, psychiatry, nutrition and many other resources.
The basis for the success of our Pain Management Program is the work of our interdisciplinary team, because each professional contributes to the treatment with their respective points of view. Also important is the commitment and colaboration by each patient.
