Pain Management Program

Cook Children's Pain Management program cares for infants, children and adolescents with chronic and acute pain. Cook Children's is one of a few children's hospitals in the U.S. providing a comprehensive pediatric pain management program.

Our goal is to improve the quality of life for our patients by giving them the tools to cope with and overcome pain. Some of our therapy options are medications, interventional pain procedures, medical acupuncture, relaxation therapy, guided imagery, biofeedback, hypnosis and cognitive behavioral therapy. We also teach our patients and families how to manage pain through exercise, diet, lifestyle modifications, and sleep hygiene.

Our team includes two board certified anesthesiologists trained in pain management, a licensed clinical social worker specializing in psychophysiology, a physical therapist, a clinic nurse coordinator, and referral to a dedicated clinical therapist. 

Because we use a team approach, patients will see their physician, physical therapist, psychophysiologist, and nurse coordinator  all in one visit.
