Pain Management

Pain is an unpleasant feeling that lets you know that something may be wrong. It is one of the body's warning signals that indicates a problem that needs attention. There are two types of pain:
  • Acute pain. This pain may come from inflammation, tissue damage, injury, illness, or recent surgery and is of short duration, usually lasting less than a week or two. It usually ends after the underlying cause is treated or has been resolved.
  • Chronic pain. Pain that persists for months or even years.
