Pain management is part of a branch of medicine that treats all types of pain including musculoskeletal, spinal and neuropathic pain disorders. The goal is to help patients avoid spiraling into a state of chronic pain or at least reduce the severe pain many patients encounter, as well as improve the patients quality of life. Pain management effectively helps thousands of people each year and is an area of concentration that primary care physicians, orthopedics, neurologists, and other health care providers rely on for their patients.
Some skills and techniques used to treat pain are:
- Interventional procedures
- Medication management
- Physical therapy
- Psychological counseling and support
- Acupuncture and other alternative therapies
