Our Pain Center is for over the last decades one of the largest and renown European institutions for multimodal therapy of patients with chronic pain.
Chronic pain is a frequently encountered phenomenon with considerable psychosocial and socioeconomic consequences. There is growing evidence that patients with a chronic pain-disorder require a treatment structure that consists of a broad range of components as provided in interdisciplinary multimodal paintherapy.
That means a comprehensive treatment where in addition to medical therapy various other specialized therapeutic interventions based on the biopsychosocial model of pain origin and chronic pain development, are added.
After decades of experience we offer this approach in our newly constructed clinic for inpatient-, dayclinic, and outpatient settings in close cooperation of several disciplines and experienced highly qualified professions (pain physicians, psychology, physiotherapy, medical trainig therapy, co-therapy, pain nurses, art-therapy), applying different therapy methods, still beyond one compact and individual treatment schedule. Our utmost goal is the improvement of physical outcomes (pain intensity and physical activity), psychological outcomes (emotional wellbeing), social outcomes (satisfaction with social roles, social activities and productivity) and thus, of patients health-related quality of life.
Our different professions under the lead of Prof. Dr. Rainer Freynhagen (D.E.A.A.) collaborate closely and interact constantly in daily team sessions to improve the patients situation. All of this is corroborated by continuous research work as documented through current top ranked international publications. As already mentioned, not just reducing and treating pain solely but also improving patients´ physical and psychological functionality is the main core of our multimodal treatment approach. At the same time patients learn to cope with their chronic pain in a far better way, which makes life for most of them much more easy.
