What is Chronic Pain

Pain is a common health problem that has been affecting people for ages, and many have tried different methods of treating body pain. There are two types of pain: acute and the other is chronic pain. Acute pain is pain that lasts for a short period, and chronic pain is pain that lasts for an extended period. Chronic pain is divided into two types: neuropathic pain and the other is nociceptive pain. Neuropathic pain is the type of pain that is caused by nerve damage or tissue injury. Neuropathic pain can be caused due to Diseases, infections, accidents, and many others. Nociceptive pain detects noxious stimuli by nociceptors, which are carried from the central nervous system to protect the body from harm. Chronic pain has several causes, such as Endometriosis, back pain, cancer, and various other reasons. Many medications can help chronic pain, such as Antidepressants, pain relievers, and anticonvulsants. These medications help reduce pain by blocking the pain sensation from traveling from the nervous system to the brain receptors.
