PAIN is one of the most common feeling, sensation, or experience that people share; regardless of race, religion and color. But unlike emotional pain, physical pain is caused by a wound or an illness, which severity varies depending on the condition of the sufferer.
There are basically 2 types of pain that people commonly experience.
Acute Pain. A type of pain that comes on all of a sudden, but has a limited duration. It is often caused by an injury to tissue like organs, muscle, bone, and the attack is often comes with anxiety and emotional torment. The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) says that, “When acute pain is left untreated, it could lead to chronic pain.”
Chronic Pain. This type of pain lasts longer than acute pain. It is linked to long-term health issues like fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, and nerve damage among many other illnesses. It is quite resistant to medical treatment. According to Drs. Ann Myers and Angela Koestler, authors of Understanding Chronic Pain, “Chronic pain disables more people than cancer or heart disease.”
Both types of pain can reduce function and quality of life, especially when they occur on a regular basis. Back pain, muscle pain, neuropathy, and carpal tunnel are just one of the most common acute and chronic pains that many individuals experience. The question is, how should one manage his or her pain? How would you manage chronic pain?
