Everyone experiences pain from time to time. Pain is the most common symptom of thousands of injuries, diseases, disorders, and conditions that you may encounter in your lifetime. Treatments for conditions and diseases can also cause it. Pain can last for a short period of time and then disappear when you heal (acute pain). It can also last months or years (chronic pain).
Pain management specialists use medications, procedures, exercises, and therapy to help you control your pain. We recommend one approach or a combination of approaches to reduce or relieve pain.
There are two kinds of pain:
Acute pain – is a natural reaction to an injury or a medical condition. It usually begins abruptly and is brief.
Chronic pain – pain that lasts longer than expected. It usually lasts longer than three months.
Pain can range from a dull ache to a sharp stab and can be mild to severe. You may experience pain in only one area of your body or it may be widespread.
