The Pain Clinic
The Pain Clinic was established in 2015 by Dr Andrew Agius who teamed up with an anaesthetist and a physiotherapist to create a one-stop-shop for patients who are suffering from chronic pain and other illnesses which have not responded to conventional medication.
Chronic pain affects 20-30% of adults and the incidence has increased following the COVID-19 pandemic. Patients with chronic pain often visit several professionals to try and find an answer to their symptoms. Persistent pain may sometimes be challenging to diagnose and patients are often subjected to several investigations before they are told that their condition is chronic and that they need to learn to live with the pain.
At The Pain Clinic, our team of professionals work hand in hand to guide the patient on what investigations are needed (if any) and on a lifestyle changes which can help improve pain management. The product specialist can guide the patient on the right supplements that can help while the doctor can prescribe the right medicines to ease the pain with the least side effects possible. Physiotherapy often helps the patient in pain to start moving again and regain their strength. Our interdisciplinary team provides the patient with a treatment plan that integrates conventional, alternative and complementary therapeutic options for quick and effective relief from symptoms.
The Pain Clinic Dispensary was established in 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic to help vulnerable patients who were unable to leave their homes access supplements and medical prescriptions through an online shop.
The online shop offers a wide range of vitamins and nutritional supplements to promote health and well-being and to complement treatment with medical cannabis. The supplements we provide are not medicines and do not require a prescription.
We also offer free advice on finding the best product for your needs though an online questionnaire or through a free consultation at our clinic in Paola. Our specialists have years of experience using these products and can recommend the most suitable supplement for your needs.
The dispensary offers same day or next day courier delivery, which is free for orders over €50. Most products are now available to buy from various outlets in Malta and Gozo.
