Pain Management

It is hard to understand what you can’t see. But, if you have a chronic pain disease or experience recurring pain because of an illness or injury, you know you hurt. Unlike acute pain that alerts the body to possible injury, chronic pain just keeps going. And, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, some people suffer from chronic pain in the absence of any past injury.
