Understanding Pain

Pain can be a nuisance, but it acts as a vital warning signal to alert your body that something isn’t right. If you identify where and why you’re experiencing pain, you can find relief.

Acute Versus Chronic Pain

Acute pain is experienced as a sudden onset that you may feel from an illness, injury, or surgery; chronic pain is persistent and lasts for months or even years. No matter what pain you suffer from, you don’t have to let it get in the way of experiencing joy.
