North Carolina Pain Management Specialists

Pain Management is a type of medical treatment that typically refers to various processes, methods, and procedures to reduce, prevent, or manage pain. This integrative approach may include the use of different physical methods, therapies, and medications. The type of pain management procedure and method largely depends on how severe the pain condition is. However, to understand what pain management is and how it works, you must know how medical science describes pain.

Medical science understands that pain is an alarm system in the body that serves as a warning that something is wrong. We experience pain when our brain receives and interprets the message. This can cause numerous negative effects on the quality of life and your ability to function or recover from injury. Unrelieved pain often becomes a chronic problem, causing a deterioration in an individual’s outlook and health. If not managed properly, chronic pain can lead to long-term health issues, depression, and substance abuse and addiction.
