Does Chronic Pain Stop You From Enjoying Your Day?
Many Canadians find themselves at the mercy of their pain levels on any given day. Controling their work, sleep, and even leisure time.
If find yourself gauging your day based on your pain that morning , or you have been experiencing persistent pain that you can’t seem escape, our specialists at Panda Clinic are here for you. We will be able to evaluate and provide professional help to determine the best treatment options for your pain. We understand that each injury and person is different, so we tailor your treatment to your needs.
Some of the most common afflictions are:
- Headaches: reoccurring pain localized to different areas of the head. While the causes for headaches can be hard to pinpoint, the need for relief is a serious issue. Whether it be from muscle tension or nerve injury, diagnosing and treating the problem is our main concern.
- Neck pain: while it can be brought on from a variety of reasons, from bad posture to recent injury, the intrusive pain can spread to other areas of the body. Radiating to your head or upper back.
- Back pain: slips and falls are a leading cause of prolonged back pain in patients. Whether it was experienced on the job, or inside your own home, the muscle strain from these accidents could lead to long term issues if left untreated.
If you find yourelf suffering from chronic pain that’s taking over your life, you may want to consider visiting our clinic.

Acupuncture and Acupressure are both methods used to stimulate acupoints on the body.
