I am considering going to one. What exactly do they do when you go in there for PF? Thanks.

Hi Nicole,

There is no one correct way to treat people in chronic pain. The clinics can use a wide variety of treatments to help you. Some will have classes where you can learn meditation, imagery, etc. Others will offer blocks, some will offer medications. Even the meds can be different, depending on the type of pain you have. You can find some good information at this web site: http://www.pain.com

Good luck, they certainly have helped me
