The advantages of being treated at PainSense include excellent access to clinic appointments and procedures, the use of high technology CT scan for spinal procedures, expertise in ultrasound guided treatments for soft tissue injuries.
Multiple treatment types are often required in the management of chronic pain. At PainSense we refer to these other treatment providers if so required. It is common to require a combination of Interventional Procedures, pharmacotherapy, physical therapy and rehabilitation, complementary medicine, lifestyle change and psychological support. We may refer our patients to preferred providers that we trust to help you.
Spinal procedures are all performed under guidance of the low-dose CT scanner, ensuring highly accurate needle localisation. Advantages also include fast access, shorter procedure times, no anaesthetic or sedation required. Overall, there is no down-time and no requirement for day stay theatre recovery.
