How Does Pain Relief Differ From Pain Management?
Pain relief differs from pain management in that it seeks to resolve the underlying cause of pain, while pain management tends to mask or cover up symptoms. Whatever your condition, the pain you experience is a by-product of something that is going on underneath the surface.
This may be a degenerative condition, a disease, soft tissue injury, fracture, misaligned vertebrae or something else. When that condition is targeted and alleviated, the pain will also be resolved and you can get on with your life.
If pain management is the goal, medication is used to cover up the symptom, which is pain and discomfort. And since the root cause hasn’t been addressed, the pain will return every time the medication wears off. Then, another dose is given and the cycle will continue on indefinitely. On the surface, the pain is being “managed” but the cause remains and you may suffer negative consequences from the drugs.
