WHAT IS PAIN?

Pain may be sudden and acute, as when you hit your finger with a hammer, or long standing and chronic, as with the pain of arthritis.  Acute pain is often due to injury, and the purpose of the pain is to alert the body to protect the area from further damage. Chronic pain on the other hand is often due to an old injury or degenerative condition, and does not serve any useful purpose in protecting the body. The pain itself can lead to further disability due to reduced use of the painful part, as well as depression and loss of confidence. A study by Mayo clinic found 24% of chronic pain sufferers to be drug dependent and 42% to be abusers. Chronic pain is, indeed, a major health problem.
