Pain management

At Spire Claremont Hospital, we provide a holistic approach to relieve and manage common types of pain and their symptoms.

Pain can be a sign from our body telling us that something is wrong. But there are different types of pain and we can often still suffer even after the source problem has been treated. This can become a debilitating cycle, because pain can stop us leading normal, active lives and – if left untreated – can also lead to psychological symptoms.

Using state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment our consultant pain specialists will analyse your individual condition and needs. We take an integrated approach to pain management and our specialists work closely with physiotherapists, psychologists, neurosurgeons and orthopaedic surgeons, to develop an effective and personally tailored treatment pain management plan.
