PAIN MANAGEMENT SERVICES
Avella Injury and Pain Management is a community-based Multidisciplinary Pain Clinic that is staffed by physicians and other health care providers who specialize in the diagnosis and management of patients with chronic pain. The primary goal of Avella Injury and Pain Management is to provide effective care for those who suffer from chronic pain.
Life with chronic pain is challenging on a daily basis. Chronic pain can be invisible from the outside, yet it can affect many aspects of one’s life. Many patients suffer physical pain as well as psychological distress. Pain starts to infiltrate many aspects of life such as activities of daily living, family life, social life, work life and sleep. At Avella Injury and Pain Management, we recognize the impact and challenges of chronic pain on our patients. We believe that chronic pain is a disease in its own right. Our goal is to provide evidence based, patient-centred care to optimize pain management, improve function and reduce suffering.
Finally, excellence is dependent upon education of the next generation of health care providers, and as such Avella is committed to integrating teaching of medical students and residents at our facility. Avella Injury and Pain Management is affiliated with McMaster University as well as the Michael G. Degroote Pain Clinic at McMaster University.
