In brief: Depends...

.......On what's causing the pain.
The first step is to find out the reason why you have pain. There are many approaches, including neural therapy, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, manual treatments (manipulation, massage, etc.), neurotransmitter therapy, pulsed electromagnetic field therapy, etc.
