Common Pain Management Methods

Proper pain management requires an approach that considers both the physical and emotional implications of a chronic condition. Depending on the cause and nature of chronic pain, there are a variety of pain management tools available for consideration:


Medication is one of the most common tools in the pain management toolbox. The type and strength of medication will vary depending on the cause and intensity of a chronic pain condition, but here are some common chronic pain medications:

  • NSAIDs – NSAIDs are Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs such as Ibuprofen or Aspirin.
  • Acetaminophen – Commonly known in the over-the-counter form, Tylenol.
  • Antidepressants – Can be used to improve quality and length of sleep, in addition to alleviating pain.
  • Steroids – Can be used to alleviate inflammation, a common source of chronic pain.
  • Anti-Seizure – Can be used to treat pain related to damage to the nervous system.


In addition to other pain management tools, therapy can be an integral part of a rehabilitation process. This commonly includes physical therapy and exercise to fortify and accelerate progress, but may also include emotional or cognitive & behavioral therapy to help cope with the stress and hardship that can come along with a chronic pain condition.
