Pain can arise from a wide range of diseases and injuries — such as sprained back, arthritis, or cancer. In other cases, pain may simply be a result of aging or poor posture. When the pain becomes too much to bear, it may be time to look into medications and procedures to find relief.
At Stormont Vail Health, our goal is to help you stop or reduce pain and find relief.
Acute pain comes on quickly and is typically temporary. This type of pain is usually the result of an injury. And once that injury is healed, the pain generally stops.
Chronic pain, on the other hand, comes and goes over a long period of time. It’s usually diagnosed after three to six months of pain. Sometimes, diseases can cause chronic pain. Other times, acute pain can worsen into chronic pain.
