Chronic Pain Services

Helps people find ways to manage chronic pain (e.g., musculoskeletal, neuropathic, pelvic, or headache pain).
Clients take part in their treatment by going to education sessions, setting goals, and exercising. Other options to manage pain include anesthetic procedures (e.g., nerve blocks) and neuromodulation (e.g., stimulators, pumps).
