Pain management is designed to treat chronic pain and allow a person to live a full, enjoyable life. Pain management requires a person's dedication, commitment, and knowledge in order to achieve the best results. It can be a great alternative to back pain surgery. It's important to understand the differences between non-invasive non-drug pain management (e.g. exercise), pain management (e.g. pain medications and anti-depressants), and invasive pain management (e.g. injections).
