Pain is an unpleasant feeling or discomfort caused by injury, illness or emotional disorder. Acute pain results from a disease, inflammation, or injury. This type of pain starts suddenly and persists for short period, as in pain after an accidental trauma or surgery. Chronic pain is caused by a disease itself and persists for a longer period of time. Pain management involves the treatment of the underlying disease with appropriate medications as well as pain relief by using medications and alternative techniques such as acupuncture, ice and heat application and massage.
