General Pain: Acute
& Chronic

When pain occurs it is showing you that somewhere in your body a problem has surfaced. People shrug pain off everyday thinking it will work its way out, but that may not be the case. You might need to seek professional help to correct and maintain the problem.

Assessing Acute & Chronic Pain

There are two types of pain you could be suffering from Acute Pain or Chronic Pain. Acute pain is new to the body and can be caused by a sprain, cut, broken bone, etc. The pain can range from mild to severe and will usually dissipate with healing. Acute pain can often be treated with physical therapy, ice, elevation, and other therapies. With help from a professional health center, acute pains can be eased and treated. At LiveWell Family Health Center, we are dedicated to helping mitigate and reduce the pain caused by injuries.

Chronic pain is different and might be accompanied by insomnia, exhaustion, even weight change and can last up to six months or more. Many look to painkillers to alienate the symptoms, but quite often painkillers will mask the cause of the problem by reducing the amount of pain. Masking pain can make injuries worse by leaving them untreated which can cause more pain in the future. Doesn’t it make more sense to find the true cause of the pain and treat it directly? LiveWell can help you treat your pain properly and avoid future pain.

At LiveWell Health, we recommend holistic methods first before moving to extreme pain treatments. This way we give your body the best opportunity possible to heal itself.

Acute pain comes on suddenly and has a specific cause. It usually doesn’t last longer than six months and goes away once the underlying cause has healed. Acute pain can be caused by broken bones, sprains, surgery, etc. Holistic methods like massage therapy or physical therapy are common ways to manage acute pain. Chronic pain, on the other hand, is long-lasting. It can continue long after an injury or illness has fully healed or it can be present even if no injury has occurred. Chronic pain is often linked to back and neck pain. Using massage therapy, chiropractic treatments, physical therapy and more, chronic pain can be well managed to help you through day-to-day activities.
