Unexpected accidents and injuries can happen on a daily basis ranging in severity from mild to extreme pain and in some cases drastically altering the way we live. Diagnosing and treatment of pain injuries is very specific. At Lemper Pain Centers we take into account the patients lifestyle, work environment, and daily activities.
There are two basic forms of physical pain: acute and chronic.
Acute pain, for the most part, results from disease, inflammation, or injury to tissues. It is immediate and usually of a short duration. Acute pain is a normal response to injury and may be accompanied by anxiety or emotional distress. The cause of acute pain can usually be diagnosed and treated.
Chronic pain is continuous pain that persists for more than three months, and beyond the time of normal healing. It ranges from mild to severe and can last weeks, months, or years to a lifetime. The cause of chronic pain is not always evident, although it can be brought on by chronic conditions such as arthritis and fibromyalgia. Chronic pain can often interfere with a patients quality of life, sleep, and productivity.
