Pain Management Clinic
Helping People Cope with Pain
Pain can be overwhelming. Whether chronic (long-term) or acute (short-term yet possibly severe), pain can generate physical, emotional, social and even economic stress for the person in pain, as well his or her family members, friends and work associates. Too often, diagnostic tests cannot pinpoint the cause of pain, and treatments may not relieve the pain.
With a comprehensive approach that addresses the many dimensions of pain, the Pain Clinic of Central DuPage Hospital aims to ease suffering and distress of people with pain.
The Pain Clinic uses a comprehensive approach to diagnose and manage chronic or acute pain. Treatment is provided on an inpatient and outpatient basis. Our services include evaluation and treatment for:
