Don’t put up with pain.
Examination and treatment are divided into three areas in the Centre for Pain Medicine:
Somatic (i.e. relating to the body, “physical”) refers to all medical disciplines, covering elements such as the entire process of neurological diagnosis and broad spectrum of interventional pain medicine, but also all aspects of non-surgical pain medicine.
Psychiatric and psychological expertise are pooled under the umbrella term of Psyche. In addition to somatic (physical) factors, psychological (mental) factors also play an important role in the onset, persistence, and treatment of (chronic) pain. For this reason, the Centre for Pain Medicine pursues what is referred to as the bio-psychosocial disease model of (chronic) pain disorders. As a supplement to this, we also apply psychiatric and biological (including medication-supported) and psychotherapeutic (including based on talking therapy) treatment approaches.
The umbrella term of Function covers pain physiotherapy, sports therapy, and occupational therapy. These areas work together in close collaboration in the interdisciplinary examination and multimodal treatment of patients.
