Pain Management Q&A

What is pain management?

Pain management is an area of health care that focuses on providing treatments to ease acute and chronic pain. Pain is a nervous system signal that indicates something is wrong. However, pain is complicated, and the site of your pain may not coincide with the source. 

Acute pain

Acute pain is sudden pain that develops from a specific cause, such as an injury or surgery. This type of pain usually goes away once the underlying cause heals.

Chronic pain

Chronic pain is pain that lasts six or more months. It’s a type of pain that continues long after your initial injury heals. You may also have chronic pain from an underlying health condition such as fibromyalgia or arthritis.
