The Chelmsford offers competitively priced treatments and surgery to both insured and self-funding patients, delivered by a fully qualified and experienced team of professionals who are dedicated to ensuring you receive the best possible treatment.
Self Referral Pain Clinic - If you have been suffering with pain and need help, we offer a self-referral, self-pay pain package. The package was put together for patients who are unable to get an appointment with their GP for an onward referral to a Pain Specialist. This enables patients to self-refer to a Consultant to determine the source of their pain.
Pain Conditions Treated
Mild Back & Neck Pain - For patients suffering from mild back or neck pain, over-the-counter pain killers and anti-inflammatory medication and gentle exercise will provide relief in the vast majority of cases. Supplementary physiotherapy or osteopathy treatment (with the option of acupuncture) can also be effective in providing rapid relief.
Acute Back Pain - Severe back pain and/or sciatica developing within the previous three months, is classed as ‘acute’ back pain. This includes pain in the lower and upper back, shoulder, neck and / or accompanying arm and leg pain (including sciatica).
Chronic Back Pain - Back pain lasting more than three months is classed as ‘chronic’ pain. It is often progressive and the cause can be difficult to determine. It usually requires a different treatment path to acute back pain.
Neuropathic Pain - Neuropathic pain is generated by nervous tissue itself. It is a disordered response to nerve injury of either the central nervous system (spine and brain) or peripheral nervous system (in areas of the body beyond the spine and brain). Additionally, drugs to relieve pain or restore function can also be effective.
Joint and Muscle - Joint & muscle pain are usually the result of an injury or sprain, or underlying conditions such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Joint pain can occur in one or more joints, can cause extreme discomfort and can seriously impact on quality of life.
Rafaelo Procedures for Hemorrhoids - Haemorrhoids, also known as piles, are inflamed blood vessels found inside the bottom (the anus and rectum). They are very common and suffered by most of us as some point in our lives. In many cases, they don't cause symptoms and many people don't even realise they have them. However, some can become swollen and cause great discomfort. There are four grades of haemorrhoids that are clinically graded by a Colorectal Surgeon. Traditionally, each stage had its own form of treatment. However, the new Rafaelo procedure can be used to treat all grades of internal haemorrhoids. The procedure can be used to treat all grades of internal haemorrhoids (however, depending on the severity, grade 4 may still require a surgical procedure).
