Pain is an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage. Pain management is essential because even when the underlying disease process is stable, uncontrolled pain prevents patients from working productively, enjoying recreation, or taking pleasure in their usual roles in the family and society. Struggling through chronic pain like arthritis, fibromyalgia, migraine, headaches and muscle pain does not have to be a daily activity. Chronic pain may have a myriad of causes and perpetuating factors, and therefore can be much more difficult to manage than acute pain, requiring a multidisciplinary approach and customized treatment protocols to meet the specific needs of each patient.
