Pain Management

« Back to Glossary Index

Pain management is a medical discipline focused on relieving and preventing pain. It involves a wide range of approaches, including medications, physical therapies, and interventional procedures. The goal of pain management is to help individuals suffering from pain to return to as normal a level of function and quality of life as possible.

There are many different types of pain, and the most effective approach to managing pain will depend on the cause and severity of the pain, as well as the individual’s medical history and other factors. Some common methods of pain management include:

  • Over-the-counter and prescription medications, such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), opioids, and muscle relaxants
  • Physical therapies, such as exercise, stretching, and massage
  • Interventional procedures, such as nerve blocks, spinal cord stimulation, and radiofrequency ablation
  • Complementary and alternative therapies, such as acupuncture, chiropractic care, and yoga

It is important to work with a healthcare provider to develop a pain management plan that is tailored to your specific needs and goals.
