Unlike physicians who specialize in specific diseases or specific systems in the body, pain management doctors focus on a single symptom: pain.
What Is Pain Management?
Pain is the most common symptom that brings patients to doctors’ offices, and the cause is not always clear. The pain may be related to a specific injury, or it may arise from less obvious sources, such as infection or inflammation.
Pain management physicians are specially trained and experienced in
- Evaluating pain symptoms
- Helping to diagnose the cause of pain
- Managing the pain while the cause is being treated
