Being diagnosed with cancer can be psychologically traumatizing. Very often, patients may need to undergo surgery, radiotherapy and/or chemotherapy. The uncertain prognosis and not knowing whether treatment will be effective continues to create anxiety and add to the patient’s suffering. Besides learning to cope with a potentially terminal illness, patients go through psychological and social life changes which may need multidisciplinary input.
At The Pain Clinic, the patient is initially assessed by a doctor who identifies how the patient can benefit from the various therapies available. The diagnosis, prognosis and patient’s treatment is discussed with the doctor and a plan is made to provide the patient with all the relevant options to reduce suffering. Adequate pain relief is ensured by providing sufficient medication. Alternative and complementary therapies which may help with physical, psychological and spiritual healing are discussed with the patient and integrated into the plan of action.
Before your first appointment at The Pain Clinic, we would like to hear about your condition. If you think you may benefit from any of our services or you would like an integrative plan to reduce your suffering, kindly email us on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 21666903 from 8-10am so we can advise you on how we can help.
