Pain

Pain medicine deals with improving the quality of life for those living with pain issues. 

Pain occasionally resolves once the underlying problem is treated.

However, when pain due to an injury or disease persists, then the role of pain medicine is to relieve suffering. 

Treatment approaches to chronic pain include:

  • Oral medication such as painkillers and anti-depressants
  • Physical therapy
  • Psychological therapy
  • Exercise
  • Interventional procedures, such as steroid injections
