Pain Management at Good Shepherd
Acute and chronic pain management
Pain management is the discipline concerned with treating acute and chronic pain. Acute pain, such as pain that occurs with trauma, often has a reversible cause and may require only temporary measures and correction of the underlying problem. In contrast, chronic pain often results from conditions that are difficult to diagnose and treat, and may take a long time to reverse. In such situations, the pain itself is frequently managed separately from the underlying condition.
