The Pediatric Pain Management Clinic treats both acute and chronic pain. Chronic pain is prolonged or occurs repeatedly for months, while acute pain begins suddenly and lasts less time than chronic pain. A team of nurses, physicians, and other pediatric specialists review all aspects of your child’s complex pain issues. They work together to develop diagnosis and treatment plans to increase your child’s comfort and function in everyday life.
During a clinic visit, your child will be evaluated by:
- a pain psychologist
- a physical therapist with special training in pain disorders
- nurse practitioners with specialized pain management training
- a physician trained in pediatrics, pain medicine, and anesthesia
