Pain management nurses look after patients who are suffering from long-term or chronic pain as a result of medical issues or trauma. These nurses use a variety of measures to help their patients manage pain, including medicines, exercise, physical therapy, diet and nutrition, and stress management techniques. Pain management nurses work in rehabilitation centers, sports medicine clinics, hospitals, and private practice doctor’s offices.
