Pain management specialises in the management and treatment of both chronic and acute pain.

Acute pain is something we all experience when we cut or injure ourselves or suffer some form of trauma, such as an operation. It is also our bodies’ way of warning us when an underlying disease process may be developing, prompting us to seek help.

In the vast majority of people, the pain settles down as the body’s healing processes take effect or after medical intervention. However, in some individuals the pain persists beyond the usual or expected time; pain that persists for over three to six months is defined as chronic pain.


Some of the conditions we treat:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Back and neck pain
  • Complex regional pain syndrome (also known as causalgia which causes swelling, discolouration and stiffness of a limb)
  • Migraine
  • Musculoskeletal and joint pain
  • Nerve injury (pins and needles, burning pain and shooting pains)
  • Pelvic pain
  • Sciatica
  • Fibromyalgia

If you suffer from back pain our back and spinal orthopaedic consultants or consultant neurosurgeons may also be able to help you.

Pain treatments

Our consultant specialists provide a variety of therapies and drugs including:

  • Epidural steroid injections
  • Nerve blocks
  • Facet joint blocks
  • Conventional (CRF) or pulsed (PRF) radiofrequency
  • Sympathetic Ganglion Block
  • Transcutaneous Electrical Stimulation (TENS)
  • Spinal cord stimulation

The service is aimed at reducing the pain, addressing the emotional impact of the pain and increasing mobility, activity and overall wellbeing.
