Chronic Pain

As opposed to acute pain which occurs as a result of a recent injury, chronic pain is not useful and can be considered a disease in and of itself. This is different from acute pain, which is has a purpose of conveying a message about injury, and is usually self-limited.

Chronic pain affects people in many ways that interfere with their lives; those suffering from chronic pain require treatment for the pain itself and for its adverse effects, such as sleep problems and mood disorders. Treating painful conditions early on sometimes prevents pain from becoming chronic.
