What is a Pain Management Doctor?
Pain management doctors specialize in alleviating all different types of pain. They are trained in the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of pain. There is acute pain, chronic pain and cancer pain or a combination of these. There are many different reasons that pain can arise. Most commonly, pain results from surgery, injury, nerve damage, and metabolic problems like diabetes. Some people experience pain that has no obvious cause, leaving doctors baffled, but pain management specialists can help the patient find some relief.
