Since April 2015, Dr Andrew Agius and his team have been researching various options to help patients with chronic pain. At The Pain Clinic, we advise patients on healthy lifestyle changes that can promote a pain-free environment and on nutritional supplements that can improve quality of life.
One such supplement which we discovered in 2016 is cannabidiol (CBD) which was already available online in Malta while medical practitioners in the UK were recommending it to their patients with cancer and chronic painful conditions.
Following extensive research on its safety and efficacy, we recommended CBD oil as a food supplement for the first time to a 34-year old female patient with fibromyalgia and noticed that this supplement helped her manage her symptoms better, tail down her medication and improve her quality of life. Her family were very grateful for this.
