Pain may be anything from a dull ache to a sharp stab and can range from mild to extreme. You may feel pain in one part of your body or it may be widespread. This unpleasant sensory and emotional experience is in direct response to an injury that may have occurred to your body.
Studies have suggested that a person’s emotional wellbeing can impact the pain levels you may experience. Understanding the cause and learning effective ways to cope with your pain can improve your quality of life*.
There are two ways to distinguish and categorise pain into Acute Pain which comes on suddenly and Chronic Pain which has a longer duration.
