Pain Management

Xray IMGMost Warfighters experience pain at some point in their careers. For some Warfighters pain is temporary, but for many others it’s a long or even chronic experience. Sometimes the treatment of pain is relatively simple. Other times pain needs to be treated or managed by healthcare providers.

This section of HPRC’s website contains resources to help you manage your pain. It also will keep you up-to-date with what the DoD and Veterans Health Administration (VHA) are doing to improve the treatment and management of pain.

Pain management logo For information geared towards healthcare providers, check out the Defense & Veterans Center for Integrative Pain Management website. Their mission is to improve pain management and its treatment in military and civilian medicine.
