Pain Management

Chronic Pain in Children

We provide an interactive, family-centered team approach to manage chronic pain.  

Pain is a complex condition that can affect all areas of a child’s life from daily functioning to family relationships. Chronic pain can last for months or even years.

Our chronic pain management team works together to manage not only symptoms, but all aspects of chronic pain. After a thorough evaluation of each patient, we develop an individualized approach to address the physical, social and emotional aspects of pain.

Commonly treated conditions include:

How We Control Pain

Pain is not just a physical problem. We look at the whole picture of a patient’s condition and provide comprehensive care to address your child’s unique needs. Our team includes physicians who specialize in the treatment of pain, a psychologist, rehabilitation physician and physical therapist who may take part in your child’s care depending on his or her needs.

After evaluation, our team will work with your family to create an individualized treatment plan. This plan will address pain symptoms along with the emotional and social aspects to improve daily functions such as sleep and sports-related activities.

Treatment plans may include:

  • Management of pain medications in an effort to minimize the use of opioids
  • Physical therapy or occupational therapy
  • Biofeedback
  • Psychotherapy
  • Procedures including:
    • Botox injections for headaches and muscle spasms
    • Nerve blocks
    • Epidural steroid injections
    • Trigger point injections
In addition to the treatment methods outlined above, we offer a number of other non-medicine pain therapies to help your child deal with pain and stress. Learn more about our complimentary pain therapies.
