The hub for chronic pain care in the GTA.

Toronto Academic Pain Medicine Institute (TAPMI) is the only single comprehensive interdisciplinary academic pain program serving as the hub for chronic pain care in Toronto.

The treatment and management of pain is complex and requires a wide range of programs and services to help those in pain function. TAPMI is created by the five major pain centres in downtown Toronto coming together to share care, so that across the five sites, patients have access to an interdisciplinary team of chiropractors, doctors, nurses, occupational therapists, pharmacists, physiotherapists, psychologists, and social workers.
