Pain Management

What Is Pain Management?

Pain management (also known as pain medicine or algiatry) is a medical specialty involving treatment for short-term pain, long-term pain, or ongoing (chronic) pain. The goal of pain management is to prevent and ease pain to improve quality of life during treatment and the healing process.
