The Pain Clinic helps to get to the root cause of your pain problem and design a pain management and exercise plan to help you avoid future recurrences.
The aim is to get your body working to optimum efficiency to cope with your life’s demands.
About Our Pain Clinic
What happens at the Pain Clinic?
You will see a chiropractor or physiotherapist first. Once problem areas are addressed through diagnosis and treatment, our aim is to help you become responsible for you own pain management and better condition yourself.
We help you achieve this through effectively combining manual treatments such as chiropractic and / or physiotherapy with rehabilitation exercise.
If necessary we will recommend complementary therapies such as acupuncture and therapeutic massage. Our sole aim is to get you better as quickly as possible and to help you stay that way.
When stress contributes to pain
Increasingly common is for stress to be an underlying cause of pain, or a prevention to healing. When this is the case, we recommend our resident Clinical Psychologist who achieves outstanding results through using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to help distinguish and change certain behaviour patterns.
Exercise at the Pain Clinic
When needed, our rehabilitation exercise gym is where one-on-one care with our rehabilitation therapist will fully assess all aspects of your strength, flexibility and fitness for a long term recovery.
Expertly guiding you to retrain your body through an individually designed programme of stretches and exercises will help you avoid the misery and unnecessary expense of avoidable recurrences.
In addition, Pilates and yoga classes are held weekly. Online exercise videos help you to exercise correctly when at home.
For patients with chronic pain conditions, there is the option of Shockwave Therapy at the Waldegrave Clinic.
Pain management pre and post surgery
The Waldegrave Clinic is a choice point of referral for many orthopaedic surgeons.
If you are expecting to undergo surgery we will advise and design the right exercises for you to do prior to surgery. This ensures rehabilitation after surgery is quicker and more effective.
During the initial aftermath of surgery we will help you manage your pain, before working with you to design a recovery program, building you back towards optimal functioning.
The Waldegrave Clinic has been awarded the coveted Patient Partnership Quality Mark AND Clinical Management Quality Mark in recognition of our superb clinical standards.
Our practice is one of the few clinics nationally that has been awarded both the Patient Partnership Quality Mark and a research status award in recognition of our superb clinical standards. Our high level of expertise is matched with an excellent range of facilities including Shockwave therapy, rehabilitation gym and private changing rooms.
