Hiya.. I find everyone experience is different when it comes to the pain clinic..but I find useful.. I can't take lots of medicine due to an intorlence and a platelet disorder.. So they are my only lifeline..x

Hi Crackers,

As claralove has said I think every Pain Clinc is very different, according to how they have set them up.......my experience was a very positive one, initially with an appointment with a pain management specialist. I then attended a 12 week course which included help from a phycologist to help one come to terms

with the emotional change. Then the physiotherapists helped with exercises that can help, learning how to pace oneself is of course a huge part of the whole process.

I really hope you find your experience as helpful as I did mine, and do come back and let us know how you get on with it πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

Sending you lots of positive and soothing vibes 😊😊
