The first thing to know is that Suboxone for pain is not an approved pain treatment; however, some doctors will prescribe it because it works well.

The reason Suboxone for pain works is because the primary ingredient of Suboxone is Buprenorphine, which is a pain fighter.

OpiateKick.com writes about Suboxone for pain:

The idea behind using Suboxone for chronic pain is that it’s a safer, and usually more effective, alternative to other pain pills like Vicodin, Percocet, or Methadone. Suboxone is safer than Methadone and works better. Another ideas behind using Suboxone for chronic pain is that it enables patients to be clear-headed rather than sleepy or nodded out.

It is important to note that Suboxone is an opiate, and all opiates have the potential for addiction. But Suboxone works differently on the brain -- there is a "ceiling" with Suboxone, so you won't get higher the more you take, unlike other opiates.

Using Suboxone for pain is relatively new, so you should have a long and involved conversation with your doctor before starting such treatment.
