Acute Pain vs Chronic Pain

Acute Pain vs. Chronic Pain


Chronic pain can last anywhere from six months to decades. The length of the symptoms classifies chronic pain as a diseased state. Examples of chronic pain include back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, migraines, cancer, nerve pain, and fibromyalgia. The causes of chronic pain are varied and sometimes mysterious, so the pain persists.

Because the causes of chronic pain are less obvious, the treatment is also more complicated. Chronic pain relief often requires a visit to a specialist or the use of over-the-counter pain relief such as anti-inflammatories and pain relievers. In some cases, topical pain relief creams can provide temporary relief of chronic pain symptoms. And of course, the Kailo pain patch serves as a proven nanotechnology alternative to all of these options.

Treating chronic pain relies heavily on the determination of the doctor and patient. The patient needs to be involved in implementing the treatment while the doctor closely monitors the results. Chronic pain is more likely to be treated successfully when both parties work together.

What is Acute Pain?


Acute pain is of shorter duration and usually disappears within six months of beginning. Acute pain could be an injury, burn, a broken bone, dental work, labor, or childbirth. In any case, the pain eventually dissipates in a few months, days, or even minutes.

If not properly treated, acute pain can turn into chronic pain, so be sure to seek treatment immediately. An hour-long trip to the doctor's office once is better than a standing appointment.

Pain relief for acute pain is usually specific to the cause. Many acute pain symptoms can be relieved by pain medication, rest, and a visit to your primary care physician.

What is Chronic Pain?


Chronic pain can last anywhere from six months to decades. The length of the symptoms classifies chronic pain as a diseased state. Examples of chronic pain include back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, migraines, cancer, nerve pain, and fibromyalgia. The causes of chronic pain are varied and sometimes mysterious, so the pain persists.

When in Doubt, See Your Doctor


In this age of constant internet access, we may feel compelled to self-diagnose when we start to experience pain. However, when we do so, a simple stomach ache can quickly become a stomach ulcer, a twisted ankle becomes a 2nd-degree sprain, and so on.As much as we like to think we know what's best for our health, sometimes seeing a professional is a better alternative.

When it comes to pain, consulting a doctor is the first place to start. Their expertise will set you on the road to healing faster than a brief glimpse at symptom trackers online.
