Pain Management

The pain management service is located across all three hospital sites.

The Dudley Pain Service provides a multi-disciplinary approach to help people referred with chronic pain problems. There are a variety of different ways of helping people to improve their quality of life, these include:

  • Physiotherapy
  • Acupuncture
  • Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve System (TENS)
  • Various tablets, drugs and injections

There is also a specific programme that is aimed at helping certain people adapt their lifestyles and approach to life to enable them to live their pain.

We are the only Trust in the area that offers a neuromodulation service – providing advanced methods of managing pain involving both spinal cord stimulation and Intrathecal drug delivery systems.
