what exactly is “pain management?”
Pain management is a relatively new sub-specialty. Over the last decade, there has been tremendous development in understanding the cause and nature of pain. The scope of pain is slowly being unraveled by pain specialists. Pain management is not just prescribing pain medicines. It is a multi-faceted discipline that utilizes expertise from various fields of traditional and non-traditional medicine. Physicians involved with treating pain are usually physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists, anesthesiologists, neurologists and psychiatrists. These doctors work in close association with primary care physicians, osteopaths, neurosurgeons, and other specialists to alleviate pain and associated emotional components like fear, anxiety, depression, and hostility.
The Bigger Picture
Although pain is the most common reason patients see doctors, it can be poorly misunderstood. Consequently, pain is often under-treated or left untreated completely, which can trigger associated emotional components like fear, anxiety, depression, and hostility. If left untreated, this ripple can negatively affect the entire family.
