Pain affects a child's mood, school performance, family life, and sleep. When a child suffers, this suffering disrupts family life. The child may also become isolated and depressed.

Pain in children and adolescents typically results from an injury, chronic illness, or surgery. Causes include musculoskeletal injuries, abdominal pain, sore throat, earaches, headaches, and other stresses. Nerve pain may also come from genetic illnesses or other conditions, such as cerebral palsy, sickle cell disease, or metabolic and hereditary diseases.

Examples include:

  • Whiplash
  • Sports Injuries
  • Tendinitis (Golfer's Elbow and Tennis Elbow)
  • DeQuervain's Tenosynovitis
  • Trigger Finger
  • Ehler's Danlos
  • Stress Fractures
  • Planter Fasciitis

Pain Zero in Central Ohio offers hope to children and families who are coping with chronic pain and wanting to return to daily living without the disorder.

Pain Zero takes a holistic approach to pain care in children and teens. At your appointment, our pain specialists will take a comprehensive evaluation, which includes a full history of all the symptoms and signs of chronic pain, an assessment of pain in terms of the 10-point pain scale, and how it affects the child's quality of life, school experience, and relationships within the family.

After this initial evaluation, our team will develop a personalized treatment plan which could include medication or certain procedures to block or reduce pain along with complementary therapies, such as psychotherapy, biofeedback, physical or occupational therapy, acupuncture, yoga, or massage.

During treatment, further assessments are necessary to measure pain but also to monitor any side effects from medications.

I've been coming here for 4 months now after trying to manage my back pain issues with every other treatment and medicine that my previous specialists offered from May 2022 until Nov 2023. In these 4 months I've had more improvement in mobility and pain relief than i did in all of 2022 and 2023. I've also seen a significant weight loss from being able to move better, cook my own food, and work again. Pain Zero also offer medicine when needed between procedures and more importantly they listen to the issues you're having and provide safe and effective pain relief. I wish I would have came here 2 years ago when my issues first started, but I'm thankful to have found a great doctor and pain management center now. Why I would suggest Pain Zero over a place that rhymes with Northo Oro for spine and neck issues through my personal experience. (Dr. C and his orthopedic team at "Northo Oro" are awesome!) I feel Dr Taif at Pain Zero listened to my issues and concerns with the pain and offered options he felt was best for me. I was very hesitant after many short lived & underwhelming procedures at the other places. Pain Zero offers all the same out patient surgical procedures as the bigger ortho centers. The difference in that is the big centers have around 30 people on staff and PZ has about 5. So the costs of the procedures are far less and you don't have an audience in the room either like the other place.
