The Treatment of Pain

Pain medicine physicians are experts at diagnosing why you are having pain, as well as treating the pain itself. Some of the more common pain problems they manage include:

  • Arthritis
  • Back and neck pain
  • Cancer pain
  • Nerve pain
  • Migraine headaches
  • Shingles

Types of Pain

Pain from a recent surgery, injury or medical illness is called acute pain. In many cases, this pain can be managed immediately and will usually get better over a short period of time. For more serious pain, your primary care doctor may ask a pain medicine doctor to help manage your pain.

If your pain persists after the healing process is complete, you might have what is called chronic pain. If the current treatment you are receiving stops working or your pain worsens over time, your primary care doctors may suggest that you see a pain treatment specialist.
