Pain Management Clinics
I want info on what-how pain management clinics work. I have a friend with oral cancer and her doctors recommended she go to a pain management clinic. I just want general info on what they do. We are more focused on chronic mind more often.
Pain Clinics should be comprehensive and work closely with the oncologist at treating cancer pain using medications, minimally invasive interventional approaches (such as injections) and other adjunctive therapies tailored to each patient’s needs.
