Pain treatments

What treatments are offered at UPCM?

Depending on your diagnosis (or diagnoses), and on the results of the pain questionnaire forms you have completed, UPCM can offer various treatment options. In some cases, two or more options may be applied simultaneously. Pain treatment can be divided into somatic (treating your body's physical problems) and non-somatic treatment.
