Chronic Pain Program

ChivaCare in Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand, specializes in treating pain of various types. We focus on medical evidence-based therapy, and complement pain therapy with recommendations based on a holistic assessment of root causes.

ChivaCare provides an ideal combination of medical care in an environment suited for pain treatment and lifestyle changes. We care for residents of Thailand as well as visitors and medical tourists.

Our overseas trained doctors and therapists are well-known experts in pain issues and cover both neurological and brain-related pain (migraine etc.) and as well as body, or physical, pain such as myofascial, office syndrome, osteoarthritis, lumbar back pain (lower back pain). They also understand the relationship between these two.

Within ChivaCare, we also have two clinics specializing in pain. The Brain Clinic specializes in neurological-related pain syndromes and in May 2019, we also opened the Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation (NIBS) Clinic. In addition, we have a close partnership with an orthopedic clinic at the Faculty of Associated Medical Science of Chiang Mai University.

Our standard program is a three week pain treatment course but other longer and shorter options as well as weekend options are also available.
