Pain Facts

Pain can be described as an intense, uncomfortable sensation. There are different kinds of pain that can be experienced. Some types of pain are felt for a sharp duration. Such pain is intense and eventually goes away. There may be a possibility to find relief from such pain through painkillers and other pain relief medications.

Other kinds of pain are for longer duration’s of time and can be persistent for months or even years. They may not be treatable with conventional medications and treatments.

These could be because the pain may originate with an initial trauma/injury or infection, and become intense and unbearable out of neglect. It could also be because of other ongoing causes of pain through illnesses and bad posture which damages nerves and tissues in the long run.
