The Pain Management Clinic assists patients in their efforts to cope with persistent pain. The goal of the Pain Management Program at the North Bay Regional Health Centre is to provide patients with education about their condition and develop strategies for coping with pain so that they may live as full and functional a life as possible. The NBRHC is dedicated to helping patients develop coping skills so that pain ceases to be the focus in their lives.
This clinic is provided on an outpatient basis. Treatment may include consultation with the physician for the diagnosis and management of chronic pain disorders as well as interventional options such as medications, pain blocks, education and problem solving as applicable for various sources of chronic pain. Chronic pain is defined as “pain lasting longer than six months or pain persisting beyond the reasonable amount of time for an injury to heal”. Chronic pain affects many people.
Services are provided two days a week by Dr. Bodley, an anesthesiologist with expertise, skill and knowledge of chronic pain management; a specially trained and skilled Registered Nurse and a dedicated clerk. The clinic is staffed by the clerk 4 days a week to coordinate all the patient appointments and referrals. A family physician or specialist referral is required; please bring your Ontario Health Card with you.
