What is Pain Management?
Pain management is a branch of medicine that focuses on the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of conditions that cause severe pain. For example, pain management specialists often help patients cope with symptoms related to nerve damage and various musculoskeletal conditions, particularly disorders that affect the spine. There are many approaches that a pain management specialist may take to helping patients, ranging from physical therapy and bracing to surgery.
