The Pain and Chronic Health Impairments Program utilizes a collaborative interdisciplinary and evidence-based approach to address the needs of young people with persistent pain and/or chronic health conditions that limit their functional abilities in day-to-day life.

Working from a biopsychosocial and patient-centered perspective, treatment is individualized and focuses on improvement in daily functioning, endurance, pain science education, self-management of symptoms, engagement in life roles, and overall improvement in quality of life. In this intensive day-hospital program, patients receive daily therapies that restore physical stamina and build awareness between the mind-body connection.
