What is algology?
Algology, or pain science, is a medical discipline that examines the causes of pain and aims to treat it by identifying its source. Algology practices mostly for chronic pain.
Long-lasting chronic pain complaints are an important health problem that negatively affects the quality of life and brings with it social and psychological problems. Patients suffering from prolonged and chronic pain can receive treatment by applying to pain clinics in health institutions. Algologists are physicians who specialize in this field and investigate and reveal the causes that may be the source of pain using various diagnostic methods. Once the cause of the pain is diagnosed, the source of the pain is treated with the most appropriate medications and interventional methods for the patient. Pain treatments are handled and coordinated with a multidisciplinary approach.
