The Pain & Wellness Centre opened its doors in September 2014. It is a patient-centred, interdisciplinary specialty clinic that aims to treat pain and preserve wellness. It is comprehensive, uses a whole-person approach, and offers choices regarding treatments. It bridges eastern and western medicine, always using best practice guidelines and evidence based treatments, and offers multiple programs and services under one roof.
Our team believes that wellness is holistic; meaning it involves both body and mind. From our physicians that are specialized in chronic pain management, to our experienced manual therapists and knowledgeable psychological and naturopathic team, we understand that chronic pain is complex and requires integrated services that reflect this philosophy.
Our centre provides patient care that is second to none. Patients feel comfortable, relaxed, and truly nurtured by our attentive team. When you are at the Pain and Wellness Centre, you are not treated like a number. All our patient encounters are primarily one-to-one, meaning you receive personalized and customized care based on your unique needs.
Pain and Wellness Centre TAPMI Program
In October of 2016, The Pain & Wellness Centre became the first ever Community Based Interdisciplinary Pain Centre to be funded by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care (as a matter of fact across Canada), alongside 16 hospital based academic pain clinics. The Centre is the Demonstration Project of MOHLTC, as the template for future publically funded community based clinics that connect academic hospitals with the communities at large.
The TAPMI (Toronto Academic Pain Management Institute) program is a unique opportunity for selected patients ONLY. Once accepted into the program, patients will receive interdisciplinary care including (some or all):
- Medical Management (Medications, Injections if required, Spinal Stimulators with our downtown affiliated partner hospitals
- Manual Therapy: Chiropractic (Manual and Exercise Therapy), Massage (Deep Tissue and Lymphatic Drainage)
- Psychological Therapy: Psychology (Counselling and CBT)/ Mindfulness Meditation
- Naturopathic and Holistic Nutrition
Depending on the individual needs of our patients, participants in the program will receive the above therapies for a duration of 3 months. Our goal is to improve overall functioning in all areas of life (activity, emotional, social, leisure, sleep, nutrition, etc), reduce pain intensity, enhance wellbeing, and give you the necessary tools and techniques to better manage your pain.
Participation in the program is based on specific criteria, so if you are interested in finding out more information, please have your family physician send us a referral for a pain assessment.
