Pain is the most common symptom that brings a patient to the hospital. Pain also interferes with the quality of life, ability to work, and even simple activities like walking, exercising and sleeping might be affected. Many busy homemakers, executives and elderly patients neglect their health. They continue to ignore their body’s signals and bear the pain till it becomes chronic and severe. Furthermore, in case of life limiting illnesses, such as cancer, the pain and suffering have a great impact on the patient and the relatives.
