Pain articles 

Return to Table of Contents

I have attempted to organize these articles various subjects starting with definitions of terms needed to really understand the approaches to pain treatment as well as a description of various types of pains.  I’ll then talk about various pain approaches and medications.  I am not an expert on the various invasive pain management techniques and you will need to look into other sites for that type of information. 
Please remember that I no longer prescribe opioids other than Suboxone for pain .
