Rehabilitation aims to assess, maintain and improve functional capacity to increase patients’ control of their life and to improve their quality of life. One aim might be to improve working capacity. The pain management clinic works together with you. During your rehabilitation, you will be personally involved in alleviating your symptoms and improving control of your pain. The treatment often consists of medication combined with pain management and rehabilitation measures as required. The treatment will give you the necessary tools to manage your condition independently and cope with a changed life situation. Treatment is given in episodes during which you will meet other persons in rehabilitation and receive information, understanding and peer support.
If you are paying for your treatment yourself, it is a good idea to seek treatment as soon as pain becomes a problem. This helps to prevent your pain becoming chronic. If your pain is persistent and has lasted 3 to 6 months, you may seek treatment on referral from your insurance company, hospital district or primary care provider. Treatment with a payment voucher may be possible even earlier if your pain does not respond to treatments and/or it considerably impairs your mobility and your functional capacity.
If you suffer from constant pain or have pain on movement, contact us at Orton. Orton has Finland’s top expertise in pain management. You are welcome to visit a specialist without a referral.
Orton’s physiotherapists specialise in treatment and rehabilitation for conditions involving severe pain and dysfunction. The methods used include different therapies, active exercise, acupuncture and relaxation.
