Pain is the most common symptom that brings a patient to the hospital. Pain also interferes with the quality of life, ability to work, and perform simple activities like walking, exercising and sleeping comfortably. Generally people neglect their health by continuing to ignore their body’s signals and bear the pain till it becomes chronic and severe.

Pain management is a new branch of modern medicine that addresses all aspects of ‘pain’. This is an emerging specialty in India, but it has been around in Western countries for a few decades now. India has a burgeoning population of elderly patients and patients with chronic diseases like Diabetes, Arthritis and Backache. In addition, Cancer is on the rise in the population. Many patients continue to suffer pain in spite of medical or surgical treatment.

Pain is a signal that tells the body that something is wrong. Chronic pain affects the personal and professional life of the patient making the patient irritable, sad or depressed. The patient may take expensive painkillers continuously without medical guidance and experience side effects like acidity and other reactions. In addition, the patient may not be able to exercise, have gradual weight gain and a rise in blood pressure and blood sugar levels. Thus, pain is a ‘Disease’ that affects both the patient and the family.
