Pain is experienced by every individual due to various reasons. It can be mild to severe, occasional or constant. Pain management is the treatment of your pain and can include various methods and techniques based on factors such as the cause, history, intensity and duration and the location of the pain. Treatment can be directed at directly relieving pain or managing the underlying condition that is causing the pain.
Pain management may include medications, interventional procedures, alternative therapies such as acupuncture, and physical therapy and/or psychological counselling that helps you cope with the pain. Your doctor will help you choose the right pain management regime based on your condition.
