Nemours Children’s Specialty Care, Jacksonville offers a pediatric pain rehabilitation program for children with acute (temporary) or chronic (long-term) pain caused by disease, injury or surgery. Led by a board-certified and fellowship-trained pediatric anesthesiologist, the program seamlessly integrates physical rehabilitation and psychological therapies to relieve your child’s body and spirit from pain, quickly and effectively.
Outpatient Pediatric Pain Rehabilitation Program for Kids (and Families)
Because pain affects a child physically, mentally, emotionally, socially and academically — and can impact the family dynamic — Nemours offers pediatric pain management with a multidisciplinary approach. This allows us to manage pain and begin therapy without delay while we do a complete work-up.
Our goal is first and foremost to make your child comfortable, and then after a complete assessment, the team will develop a longer-term strategy focused on avoiding opiate pain medicines and maximizing the control your child has over pain and the anxiety it brings. Since every child is different, our pediatric pain management team customizes the assessment and rehabilitation planning specific to your child’s needs, combining proven treatments.
