The Chronic Pain Management Service at Kingston Hospital offers a range of medical and non-medical interventions for people living with chronic pain. We are an interdisciplinary team with expertise in management and treatment of chronic pain. Our goal is to improve pain control, support adaptive changes to improve daily function, productivity and overall quality of life. The multidisciplinary team includes consultant anaesthetists, clinical psychologists, physiotherapists, a pain specialist nurse, an acupuncturist, an Alexander technique teacher and office support staff, who between them combine many years of clinical expertise.

Patients with chronic pain are referred to the Chronic Pain Management Service by health professionals, including general practitioners, extended scope practitioner physiotherapists and hospital-based consultants, such as orthopaedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, neurologists and rheumatologists.

We provide advice and treatment for a wide range of chronic pain conditions, including: chronic back, head and neck pain, post-surgical pain, reflex sympathetic dystrophies, post-herpetic neuralgia and other neuropathic pain, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic pelvic pain, vulvodynia/vestibulitis, temperomandibular joint pain, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome and various neurological conditions.

Most people attending the pain clinic have already tried a number of treatments but unfortunately are still experiencing pain.  People have usually had pain for over 6 months and this type of pain is defined as chronic pain.  Treatments offered will depend on your pain condition and will be discussed with you on an individual basis however options include:

  • Interventions e.g. injections
  • Medication reviews
  • Pain Management Programme – https://youtu.be/dW_AHGg37TM
  • Mindfulness Programme
  • Exercise Programme
  • Pain Specialist Physiotherapy
  • Pain Specialist Psychology
  • Acupuncture
  • Alexander Technique
