Pediatric Pain Clinic
Whether pain stems from a chronic illness or an unknown cause despite thorough testing and evaluation, it impacts a child’s quality of life. Pain reduces physical activity and sleep quality. It can cause depression and affect schoolwork and interactions with family and friends. Therefore, pain in children requires a multidimensional approach involving physical rehabilitation, counseling, education and conventional medicine.
