pain management crestviewPain management, also called pain medicine, utilizes a interdisciplinary approach to ease the suffering and improve the quality of life of those living with pain. The pain may be the result of an injury, surgical intervention, cancer or other specific cause, or may constitute the primary problem, as in neuropathic pain and headache.

In spine and musculoskeletal cases, pain management is usually distinguished from surgical treatment, and is employed as an alternative to surgery as part of a conservative care program, or after surgery to cope with residual pain. Pain management and the techniques it uses also help to identify the source of neck and back pain, determine the areas to be addressed surgically, and rehabilitate the patient after surgery.

Pain comes from the Latin word poena – meaning punishment. It is used to describe the feeling of anguish, discomfort or hurt depending on the severity of the sensation and can affect all regions of the human body. Pain is an individual experience and only the person experiencing it can accurately describe it. Pain can be either acute or chronic. Acute pain is typically very intense but usually goes away once treated. Chronic pain can range from mild to severe and last much longer. It could start with injury or illness and sometimes develops a psychological dimension to it that lingers long after the physical problem heals.
