I am seeing a "pain management" specialist tomorrow. He will decide the proper pain medication for my degenerative disc disease. That is, in a nutshell, all I really know about this kind of doctor. But I can't imagine that a doctor could make an entire career out of simply prescribing pain medications. So what else do these doctors specialize in?

They can also send you to PT and prescribe a TENS unit as well. For many it's a life saver!!! I worked in a PT clinic as an Athletic Trainer and we dealt with pain mngt doc's.... there are many avenues for pain management. This doc specializes in finding the right combination to treat your specific pain.
