Program Details

The Chronic Pain Management Unit offers an intensive four-week day program for adults with chronic pain.  

  • Daily fitness program
  • Setting weekly goals to participate in tasks that are meaningful to you
  • Group discussions
  • Functional and recreational activity
  • Daily relaxation
  • Hydrotherapy and yoga
  • Discussions about return to work
  • Education groups to provide you with more information on techniques to learn how to cope with your pain

The Program runs between the hours of 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Monday to Friday. 

For patients requiring over-night accommodations we have a preferred rate with a local hotel, the Courtyard Marriott, 1224 Upper James, Hamilton.  This is ideal for patients who may not have an interdisciplinary team approach to pain management in their community.  If you want further information on their services please visit their website:  Courtyard Marriott  or you may contact them at 905-383-7772.  If distance allows, most patients will go home for the weekend.  Others may need arrangements made for weekend accommodations as well. 

If you are unable to attend a four-week program we can make treatment recommendations designed to help you, your family doctor, and agencies associated with your claim, deal with your chronic pain condition.  Individual recommendations may address medication issues, psychological needs, return to work assistance, and family supportive counseling.  We can also tailor an individual program specific to your needs.  

To participate in this program, an individual must attend an assessment at this facility.  A referral can be made by your family doctor, lawyer, rehab consultant, insurance company, Veteran Affairs, Workplace Safety and Insurnace Board, and other health care professionals.
