Pain Management

Acute pain is adaptive and protective and usually abates with physical recovery. In comparison, chronic pain is defined by the persistence of pain beyond the usual healing time, usually beyond 3 months. Unlike acute pain, chronic pain typically has no adaptive purpose and the onset and cause may be unclear. It can evolve into an entrenched, self-perpetuating cycle of psychological distress and suffering.
