Acute and Chronic Pain | Pain Conditions Treated at CHOICE

Acute and Chronic Pain

  • Acute pain usually begins suddenly and may be intense. It often triggers visible bodily reactions such as sweating, an increase in blood pressure, and more. Acute pain is generally a signal of injury to the body, recent surgery or medical illness; and it resolves when pain relief is given and/or the injury is treated. In more serious cases of pain, however, a pain medicine doctor may be necessary to help manage the pain and offer patients relief.
  • Chronic pain persists, and pain is often considered chronic when it lasts beyond the normal time expected for an injury to heal or an illness to resolve. Chronic pain, also known as persistent pain, can be stressful for both the body and the soul, and usually requires careful, ongoing attention to be treated appropriately.
