The Importance of Pain Management

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), almost 1 in 5 American adults experiences chronic pain – pain that lasts for 3 months or more. Also, 8% of U.S. adults suffer from high-impact chronic pain that interrupts their daily activities.

Pain medicine specialists are experts in chronic and acute pain management. Their aim is to help patients to gain a better control of their ongoing pain issues, so they can improve their quality of life.

Pain management specialists are working with:

  • Diagnosing pain conditions
  • Evaluating pain symptoms
  • Dispensing pain medications
  • Treating nerve damage and metabolic disorders related to pain
  • Palliative care and cancer pain
  • Providing surgical interventions
