Pain Management / Chronic Pain:

Pain is often regarded as a physical phenomenon, but it is largely affected by psychological factors. “Chronic pain” is defined as pain that lasts longer than three (3) months and is resistant to medical treatment. Chronic pain is very common amongst Canadians, and affects individual’s home life, work life, reduces physical activities, and often result in depression, anxiety, and can contribute to drug and alcohol dependence.

Andrew Shaul’s pain management specialists use pain management programs to assist patients suffering from physical difficulties, as well as associated emotional difficulties, by changing the way the patient thinks about pain and their circumstances.
