Goals & Benefits of Pain Management
Living with pain can have lasting effects on your health and wellbeing. At Finley's Pain Clinic, we do everything we can to treat and manage patients’ pain that affects their daily lives. While there isn't a cure for pain, we provide hope for patients seeking pain relief. Individuals suffering from pain may benefit from the services provided at the Pain Clinic.
Patients who suffer from pain that is recurring, lasting 6 to 8 weeks, from an injury, surgery or other health condition may see pain relief or increased functioning as a result of treatment. Treatment of pain caused by neuropathic diseases and injuries is analyzed at the Pain Clinic and then further reviewed by a physician for follow-up care and procedures.
Achieving patient goals and improvements is important to us. Although pain can be impossible to cure, the Pain Clinic helps patients live with and better manage pain. We hope to: reduce your pain and its severity, increase your activities at home and work, and improve your quality of life.
