It means the management of pain as opposed to the elimination of pain. Some chronic pain simply can't be eliminated completely. If you need to live with that for the rest of your life, you need to learn how to properly manage it so you can get on with your life.
Pain management seems to be subjective. It will mean different things to different people. To some it will mean the elimination of pain. To others it will be an acceptable tolerance of pain. To others it will mean weighing your options. Surgery and meds have associated risks

A Doctor/Clinic who prescribes medications to control your pain at a manageable level so you can have somewhat of a life of what you once knew. The amount of medications wrote for you will NOT get you high,but only relieve your pain to a point where you can bear the rest. Please do your research on everything...Doctors,Clinics,Medications.....
