Pain Medicine

At The Edinburgh Clinic we offer fast access to private appointments with specialist pain medicine consultants for all aspects of chronic pain management.

What is pain?

In its simplest form, pain is caused by tissue damage, for example, if you have been burnt, cut or have a broken bone. Sometimes pain is caused by dysfunction in the nerves carrying pain messages.

If these nerve fibres and pathways become damaged or broken, it can create a range of painful, unusual, or uncomfortable sensations, ranging from acute, exquisite pain, to tingling or ‘pins and needles’ sensations, to continuous aching or throbbing pain. This is known as neuropathic pain.
