What Is Acute Pain?
Acute pain begins suddenly and is usually sharp in quality. It serves as a warning of disease or a threat to the body. Acute pain may be caused by many events or circumstances, including:
- Activities of Daily Living (ADL’s)
- Sports/Athletic Events
- Auto Accidents
- Sleeping wrong
- Work Related
- Playing with the kids
In most cases, acute pain does not last longer than six months and it disappears when the underlying cause of pain has been treated or has healed. Unrelieved acute pain, however, may lead to chronic pain.
With severe acute pain, the initial treatments are geared to controlling the pain levels and getting the patient to function better. Once the pain levels subside a bit, more treatment methods are implemented to progress the pain relief.
