When you are in pain, you everyday life suffers. If you suffer from frequent headaches, pain throughout the body or at a specific point, contact us with confidence. We treat pain with acupuncture and blockade of the so-called trigger points. Although it can have major consequences, we still know little about pain. It is uncomfortable both physically and emotionally, and it also affects our ability to perform tasks at work, at home or in the society. Although pain can be long-lasting, one should never give up on trying to treat it. In addition to medications, pain can be treated with alternative therapies such as acupuncture, acupressure and massage, depending on the needs of each patient. At the Rotim Clinic, each patient is approached individually with the choice of the best and most successful method of pain treatment depending on its etiology, with the help of a detailed examination, diagnosis and therapeutic procedures.
Department for treatment of pain
In the outpatient department for treatment of pain, the main goal is to solve every problem that creates pain for the patient and prevents him/her from having a high quality of life. The team includes anesthesiologists, neurologists, surgeons, therapists and nurses who work together to create a treatment plan according to the patient’s needs. When medications are not enough, they are combined with other treatments. Local anesthetics, corticosteroids, nerve blocks, physical therapy, electrical stimulation and psychological counseling are then used, all with one goal – pain relief and normal life for the patient.
Preparing for surgery
If you are preparing for surgery, you need to be examined by an anesthesiologist. It is extremely important to answer in detail and honestly all questions about diseases, medications, allergies and habits such as smoking, alcohol or narcotics. This will help us choose the best method of anesthesia for your body. Of course, you can ask questions, which we will be happy to answer in detail.
