We understand that each individual's sensitivity to pain is different, so at the Center, we choose the treatment that you need to block the pain and that allows you to resume your normal routine.

Treatment of chronic pain is a complex and long process: sometimes one injection is enough and sometimes the treatment lasts all year round. It is important to us that the person should live a full life without suffering and pain even during the treatment.

Chronic pain is usually triggered by radiculopathies and myofascial syndrome. After suffering the pain that accompanies these diseases for a long time, the body gets used to it. As the human nervous system becomes more sensitive to such pain, it becomes less and less irritable enough to produce chronic pain. Not only does invasive pain management relieve uncomfortable feelings, it also helps the body regain balance and relieve sensation.
Radiculopathy – Most well-known for radiculitis pain, myofascial syndrome – chronic muscle pain due to muscle strain caused by irregular posture, spinal deformities or other causes. Chronic pain is also often manifested as neuralgia, with pain caused by direct nerve damage such as post-herpetic neuralgia.
At our Center, we treat the primary disease and its chronic pain in a comprehensive way. We do away with pain, the patient regains freedom of movement, but the disease that caused the pain also needs to be cured. For example, in myofascial syndrome, muscle tension needs to be restored. Here the pain treatment specialist is assisted by rehabilitation specialists and physical medicine specialists.
