The pain management is also termed as algiatry or pain medicine which is a separate branch of medicine which mainly emphasizes to reduce the pain of the patient and thereby improving the quality of life of the patient.
Thus for the pain management a separate department is formulated and started in every hospitals and called as Pain Management Center. The main objective in opening the pain management centre is to avoid the traffic of the patients in the general medical wards and also to improve the quality of life of the patient as soon as possible.
A simple Pain Management Center includes the personnel like medical practitioners, psychologists, natural therapists, dietician, massage therapist, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, staff nurses, lab technicians, etc. These all medical personnel together formulate the pain management centre and treat the patients for their pain.
The patient will be taken into the pain management ward after complete check-ups so that the diagnosis for the pain will be ruled out and confirmed first. And according to the problem the pain management treatments will be produced to the concerned patient. Both acute and chronic patients will be handled by the Pain Management Center.
The acute condition patients like fracture cases, trauma cases, minor road traffic accidents cases and chronic condition patients like paralysis cases, stroke cases, rehabilitation cases, etc will be taken into consideration for the pain management and as per the stage of problem the treatment will be started.
Sometimes the treatment will be minor which the patient can exert himself in the home if once explained clearly. But sometimes the treatment has to be implemented in the hospital only. In such conditions the patient has to get admit in the pain management ward. Most of the time pain will be treated and managed appropriately and rectified sooner in the pain management center itself.
