Pain Spa clinic is fantastic!! This is the first time I've ever written a google review but I just had to share how incredible they are & how much they have helped me. From their informative website to my first telephone conversation, to my consultation and ultimately my procedure PainSpa's wonderful nurse Jan & the amazing pain medicine consultant Dr. Krishna were incredible. I was treated wonderfully, with care, respect, professionalism, understanding and, most importantly, they reduced my pain!! I came to them having been bed ridden for 6 months & in immense pain. I am lucky enough to have a wonderful GP & I see several different NHS hospital specialists who were all trying their best to help me but I was a prisoner to my pain & it affected every area of my life. Within 3 weeks of seeing Dr. Krishna, I was off my Oramorph, out of bed, back at work (on light duties & short hours) and feeling like a person again. Obviously, they aren't miracles workers; they can't cure complex &/or long term health issues but they can have a huge impact on your pain. They certainly reduced my pain & gave me my life back.I went to their clinic at The Willows & I honestly can't recommend them highly enough. I am not linked to them in any way, shape or form other than being a normal paying customer like everyone else. I just hope this review helps someone as I've been helped.

I have been suffering from severe abdominal pain for nine months resulting in repeated visits to my GP, emergency department visits and a range of procedures including surgery without any success - in even getting a diagnosis. I have been unable to walk, sit or carry out any type of movement without experiencing severe pain, and even strong pain relief has not been effective. With the risk of losing my job as a nurse, I made the decision to attend an appointment at the Pain Spa to see if they could shed some light on my symptoms and condition. It was the best decision I could have made. During the consultation, Dr. Krishna discussed how abdominal wall pain could be causing my current pain. He discussed several options available to me including acupuncture and TENS machine, but I was adamant I wanted the Steroid/anaesthetic injection. I felt the benefit of the injection before getting off the treatment table and am not ashamed to say I shed a few tears of relief. My husband said I "bounced with joy" back into the waiting room. Since the treatment, I have been able to walk without any pain and discomfort but decided to have the pulsed radio frequency treatment to reduce any further niggles. It's been less than a week since then and I am completely off my Tramadol doses. I couldn't have contemplated returning to any type of work - let alone my full-time community nurse role prior to this injection treatment. As it is, my return to work date is now set within the next two weeks. I cannot thank Dr. Krishna and Jan McKechnie enough for their professional and compassionate care throughout my treatment. Without this successful treatment, I faced many more months of treatment with the risk of no correct diagnosis being found. I have been given back my quality of life and will be forever grateful to them for that.

After a harrowing experience and 6 weeks in the hospital, my family clubbed together to get me the treatment I needed. I was diagnosed with ACNES and faced and agonizing 18 weeks wait for ultrasound guided steroid injections. Dr. Krishna was polite, friendly and very knowledgeable. During the consultation, he was extremely thorough and answered all of my questions before I even had to ask them. During the procedure, he guided me through everything he was doing and explained every step. Both Jan and Dr. Krishna put me at ease which is no small feat! I am happy to say that within a few days of my procedure I am now pain-free and the happiest I have been in a very long time. I shall return if I ever need any further treatment without any doubt at all!

I have had radiofrequency lesioning therapy a number of times under Dr. Krishna and for me it means up to 12 months of pain-free living. Although there is some pain during the procedure, it does not last long. Soon you can be pain-free and be able to do a lot more than you could before. Full relief can take up to 6 weeks but the results can be spectacular.
