Pain Management is a branch of medicine employing an interdisciplinary approach to ease the suffering and improve the quality of life of those living with pain. Since there are numerous causes of pain, an approach using multiple modalities is necessary. A pain management spe-cialist is a physician who has completed specialty training in evaluation, diagnosis, and treat-ment of all different types of pain. This includes a wide spectrum of disorders including acute pain (pain that occurs immediately after an injury), chronic pain (pain that lasts several months), cancer pain, as well as any combination of these.
