Our highly skilled teams manage a wide range of painful conditions and aim to share their knowledge with patients, giving them the tools and resources to manage pain and improve their quality of life.
We provide treatment and support for patients with chronic (long-term) and acute (short-term) pain. Our chronic pain service offers outpatient clinics in locations throughout Gloucestershire.
Following assessment by our multi-disciplinary teams, we use a range of treatments to reduce pain or better manage its effects on life.
The Pain Clinic team offer medical consultations for pain. Clinics are run in Gloucester, Cheltenham, Tewkesbury, Stroud, Cirencester and the Forest of Dean. A wide range of treatment and management options are available, including both invasive and non-invasive procedures and advice on medication.
After initial assessment, our multi-disciplinary team will use a wide range of therapeutic approaches both to attempt to relieve the pain and to equip and empower patients to manage their pain.
Pain self-management helps people to manage pain themselves. The multi-disciplinary team includes nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and psychologists who are based in Gloucester and Cheltenham. The aim of self-management is to improve the quality of life and we use cognitive behaviour therapy and mindfulness approaches to do this.
