Types of Pain:
- Acute pain is a type of pain that typically lasts less than three months or pain that is directly related to soft tissue damage such as a sprained ankle or a cut. Acute pain is of short duration, but it gradually resolves as the injured tissues heal.
- Chronic pain is often defined as any pain lasting more than three months. Whereas acute pain is a normal sensation that alerts us to possible injury, chronic pain is very different, and besides, it can often persist for months or even longer.
