The Mediterraneo First Care Pain Management Clinic in collaboration with Mediterraneo Hospital Pain Unit offer comprehensive and personalized health services to people suffering from chronic pain. They apply the same standards of respective top Centers for Pain Management and Spinal Cord Diseases abroad.

The Clinic focuses on the diagnosis of chronic pain causes in order to successfully address, with minimal invasive treatment.

Pain Management Clinic

Pain, the unpleasant feeling caused by a dysfunction of the human body, either due to injury or an underlying disease, is in fact a protective mechanism.

Usually, pain subsides when the painful stimulus ceases and when the healing of the injured tissue has been completed. However, in some cases the pain can persist, and this indicates chronic pain, like neuropathic pain, rheumatic diseases pain, idiopathic pain, and of course, cancer pain.

The form of pain varies and may be described as burning, shock-like, stab-like sensation, or as pins and needles. On the other hand, visceral pain, the pain due to an internal organ dysfunction, may be diffused and difficult to identify or even accompanied by other symptoms, such as nausea or vomiting.

The pain intensity is also difficult to determine because of the subjectivity of the emotion, and for this reason it is monitored by specific questionnaires completed by the patient himself (McGill scale).

What exactly is Pain Management Clinic?

Our mission at the Mediterraneo First Care Pain Clinic is the treatment of acute and chronic pain in order to relieve the patient and improve the quality of life for himself and his family.

Physicians at the Pain Management Clinic are scientists trained to diagnose and treat problems but also to offer psychological support to the patient who is suffering.

Diseases

Pain is totally subjective and each patient experiences its type, duration and intensity differently.

In the Pain Management Clinic we take into account the patient’s history, clinical and / or laboratory tests, as well as specific questionnaires based on scientific pain measurement scales.

Thus, we can identify the cause of the problem and we are able to deal with conditions such as:

  • Algodystrophy or Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)
  • Arthritis – Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid arthritis, Psoriatic arthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Cancer pain
  • Herniated disk
  • Neuralgia – Postherpetic neuralgia, Trigeminal neuralgia, Peripheral neuropathy, Carpal tunnel syndrome, Sciatica
  • Post-traumatic pain
  • Postoperative pain
  • Vertebral stenosis

The clinic offers the full range of minimally invasive techniques, similar to those found in state-of-the-art medical centers around the world, thus ensuring more effective diagnosis and treatment of painful disorders.
