Pain is a highly subjective experience that varies from person to person; two people might feel a similar sensation of pain, but one might be suffering from acute pain and the other from chronic pain. In this post, we hope to shed light on the difference between each type of pain, and how you can recognize one from the other.
According to arthritis.org, “More than 50 million adults and 300,000 children have some type of arthritis” in America. This staggering statistic is made even more unfortunate when you consider that the condition itself is not well understood. Over one hundred known types of arthritis and related conditions exist today. It is a chronic disease, and therefore uncurable, but can be managed with specialized products, medications, and lifestyle choices.
According to this WebMD article, around 100 million people are forced to endure the daily struggle caused by chronic pain. Acute pain can be relatively simple to relieve. Chronic pain, on the other hand, is an entirely different ordeal. Dealing with chronic pain becomes a lifestyle for many sufferers. Fortunately, Bruder Healthcare offers an assortment of products to ease the everyday problems associated with chronic pain.
As we noted in our article concerning acute pain (LINK to “What’s Hurting? Causes and Symptoms of Acute Pain” article), the symptoms of this type of pain can be severe. While it’s important to have basic understanding of acute pain and how it affects the bodily tissue, you might not care about that while experiencing it! What’s important for you is possessing a basic knowledge of First Aid. By understanding how to treat your acute pain immediately, you will decrease the time spent healing your injuries, and therefore decrease the time spent in pain.
Acute pain is the most recognizable type of pain. Unfortunately, all of us have experienced it at some point in our lives! Acute pain affects you immediately and goes away quickly after its cause is removed from the equation. Remember the last time you sprained your ankle or wrist while playing sports? Have you ever strained your back from gardening or lifting heavy objects? These are all examples of your brain interpreting an injury as acute pain, and letting you know that you need to do something about it!
