The Pain Treatment Center operates, participates in, or refers children and adolescents to separate clinics or programs that address different forms of pain or pain in different settings:
Inpatient Pain Service
Home Analgesia Program
The Home Analgesia Program works with Boston Children’s surgical, anesthesia, and nursing teams to identify young patients for whom catheter-based regional anesthetics may be appropriate. We then create a comprehensive plan for care that begins before surgery and continues for two weeks afterward.
The Mayo Family Pediatric Pain Rehabilitation Center (PPRC)
The Pediatric Pain Rehabilitation Center (PPRC) at Boston Children's Brookline is an intensive rehabilitation program that serves the needs of children and adolescents between the ages of 7 and 18 who continue to suffer disabling, chronic pain despite having outpatient treatment. Most patients referred to this clinic have been diagnosed with CRPS.
Medical Acupuncture Service
Pediatric Interventional Pain Program
The Pediatric Interventional Pain Program offers a variety of minimally invasive interventional pain management options to eligible patients, including spine procedures, peripheral nerve blocks, muscle, joint and bursa procedures and more.
The Comfort Ability® Program
The Comfort Ability® Program supports children and adolescents with chronic or recurrent pain problems such as headaches, abdominal pain, muscle, nerve, or joint pain. The program is based in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and teaches an array of proven strategies that support recovery. Workshops for teens (ages 10 to 17) and their parents/caregivers are offered in person or virtually.
Young Adult Pain Rehabilitation Center
The Young Adult Pain Rehabilitation Center (YAPRC) is an intensive rehabilitative program for young adults between ages 18 and 26, who have ongoing chronic pain and limitations in completing typical daily activities after they have tried outpatient treatments.
