What is pain management?
Pain management is a branch of medicine that involves the active treatment of the sensation of pain. While this pain may be temporary in nature, such as from an injury, it is often in the context of ongoing or chronic pain. When this type of pain occurs, proper management is very important to not only provide relief from the unpleasant sensation of pain but to alleviate the debilitating side effects of chronic pain.
Pain management techniques include, but are not limited to:
- Medication management
- Lumbar/spine injections
