What is the Pain Clinic?
Southern Counties Veterinary Specialists now offers a Pain Clinic as part of a multidisciplinary specialist approach to patients’ wellbeing and quality of life. The Pain Clinic provides an individualised and multimodal approach to the management of a patient’s acute, perioperative or chronic pain.
The initial consultation will provide an in-depth assessment of the patient’s pain and suffering, as well as of the owner's concerns and expectations. It will help determine a pain management plan which may include changes to the medication regimen, acupuncture, physiotherapy and environmental and lifestyle changes.
When to consider the Pain Clinic?
A Pain Clinic consultation may be indicated for a wide range of disorders such as:
Chronic painful conditions such as osteoarthritis, intervertebral disc disease and pancreatitis
Pain and mobility management in geriatric patients
Recovery from orthopaedic surgery and/or neurological injury
Neuropathic, cancer and muscular pain
Pain with no identified cause or source
When conventional pain medications are not sufficient, poorly tolerated or contra-indicated
When owners feel they need more support or wonder “What else can we do?”
