Management of persistent pain
Did you know that 1 in 5 people currently live with chronic pain? In fact, nearly 8 million Canadians are affected by this condition. Persistent pain is associated with changes in the central nervous system. Specific interventions included in our program can correct some of these impairments.
Best practices recommend treating chronic pain with an interdisciplinary team, which is why our program includes physiotherapists, occupational therapists and kinesiologists.
