What are the most common problems associated with chronic pain?
A broad variety of common conditions with different pathophysiologies are associated with chronic pain, including cancer (and its treatment), degenerative spine disease, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, human immunodeficiency virus, migraine, diabetic neuropathy, and postherpetic neuralgia.
What is pain management?
Pain management, pain medicine, and/or pain control is a branch of medicine employing an interdisciplinary approach for easing the suffering and improving the quality of life of those living with chronic pain. (Will you manage my RX? Yes!)
What is post-surgical pain?
