Sir William Osler said “The good physician treats the disease; the great physician treats the patient who has the disease. “Chronic pain is a disease. Identifying the correct pain originator and treating the whole person can greatly reduce the pain burden of the patient. Some pain is preventable, and Some pain is curable.
