Pain management is a branch of medicine employing an interdisciplinary approach for easing suffering and improving the quality of life of those living with chronic pain. The typical pain management team includes medical practitioners, pharmacists, clinical psychologists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, physician assistants, and nurses. Medicine treats injury and pathology to support and speed healing; and treats distressing symptoms as pain to relieve suffering during treatment and healing.
