What is Pain Management?


Pain management is a broad branch of medicine that focuses on relieving pain, managing pain caused by chronic conditions, and improving quality of life. If you are in pain, you might need an anaesthetist or another pain management specialist to help you to feel better.

Pain management can help with all kinds of pain. A pain management specialist might perform the anaesthesia when you have an operation, provide pain relief while you are undergoing treatment for conditions such as cancer, or help you to manage migraines or chronic joint or back pain.

Pain is a complex problem and it often requires a complex solution. Pain management can incorporate a variety of techniques ranging from anaesthesia to acupuncture, and it can also involve a whole team of pain management specialists. You might need to see a doctor who specialises in managing pain, but you could also get help and advice from pharmacists, physiotherapists, and other experts.

The main difference between pain management and other areas of medicine is that pain management focuses on helping you to feel better, rather than investigating or treating the cause of your symptoms. Pain management is not just about providing medicine for pain relief, it is also about helping you to live the fullest possible life.
