The types of pain we can treat
We treat a wide variety of pain conditions, both short- and long-term. In the vast majority of cases, medical cannabis can reduce pain by tackling the root cause, and can improve the poor sleep, loss of appetite and mobility issues associated with pain. Among the many conditions we can help with are
Musculoskeletal, neuropathic and widespread pain syndromes
These are often ongoing problems, but cannabis-based treatments can help alleviate the pain associated with such long-term health conditions.
Causing pain, inflammation and swelling, arthritis can affect all major joints of the human body and can be a debilitating condition. Medicinal cannabis can help relieve pain and aid mobility in the affected joints.
Back pain and sciatica
There can be multiple causes of back pain, but it can be disabling at its most severe. The pathology tends to originate in the spine or spinal cord, which can be relieved by medicinal cannabis.
Similar to back pain, neck pain usually stems from damage to the vertebrae or nerves in the neck or at the top of the spine. This can also cause headaches and debilitating migraines.
A chronic rheumatological condition, Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) affects the connective tissues of the body. This can include the skin, joints, organs, ligaments and blood vessels, leading to severe pain, unstable joints and malfunctioning organs. Medicinal cannabis can help with all these symptoms.
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) usually only affects one limb but may spread to other areas of the body, causing severe pain which can be debilitating and long-lasting. This pain is usually triggered by an injury but lasts far longer than normal recovery should. The limb may appear swollen, discoloured and become very sensitive to touch.
A long-term and widespread pain issue, it can be hard to find a specific cause for fibromyalgia. Medicinal cannabis can help alleviate the pain and associated brain fog, fatigue and other common symptoms of the condition.
While your condition may not be listed above, this list is far from exhaustive. Whether or not you have been formally diagnosed or are yet to receive a diagnosis, our medical professionals can help. We work to uncover the causes of your pain and tailor a treatment programme to your specific complaint, to ensure you get the very best outcomes.
