Dr. Norman Marcus
Pain Management
1 doctor agrees
In brief: It depends...
What is the cause and suspected diagnosis for the pain? It it is fibromyalgia or chronic widespread pain, which are not clearly understood, so treatment is directed at relieving symptoms, mood, pain and function rather than attacking the causes; but studies have shown that succesful treatment of pain generators such as an arthritic joint or muscle trigger points, can diminish the pain.
