Chronic Pain Management
What is Chronic Pain?
Chronic pain is defined as pain that lasts more than three months. The discomfort may be constant or intermittent. You can experience it anywhere on your body.
How is it different from Acute pain?
Acute pain is a different kind of pain than chronic pain. When you are harmed, whether it be a minor cut to the skin or a fractured bone, you experience acute pain. It passes quickly and disappears once your body has recovered. On the other hand, chronic pain persists even after you have fully recovered from an illness or accident. Even it happens when there is no reason.
Chronic Pain Treatment
Treatments for chronic pain may focus on relieving symptoms or treating underlying conditions, and vary depending on the cause and severity of the condition, as well as the patient’s overall health and medical history. The most successful Pain Management programs are those that are specifically tailored for each individual patient so that they can remain actively involved in their own recovery.
Common causes of Chronic Pain
Some of the common sources and types of chronic pain include
Lower back pain
Neurogenic pain (pain caused by nerve damage)
