What is Pain?
Pain is a condition that can occur in any part of the body, caused by different causes and causes discomfort to the person. In the definition of pain, the cause of the appearance of pain and the duration of its continuity are taken as basis.
What Are the Types of Pain?
Pain in the body can occur due to different causes. Pain is examined in two groups depending on the duration and source of its continuation. These are “acute pain” and “chronic pain.”
Tissue damage causes pain directly in the area where it occurs. Or it can show its effect in different areas and cause pain in many parts of the body. This condition is defined as acute pain. Two factors that are important in the definition of acute pain are; the duration and source of pain. Acute pain can be a symptom of a disease. Acute pain, which is also a stimulant, may indicate that a problem has occurred in the body and that treatment is needed. Pain can be defined as “acute pain” if it causes complaints only for a short time and is caused by a pathological cause.
Pain may occur with tissue damage, injury or illness. But if the pain persists despite the disappearance of these pathological conditions, it can be defined as chronic pain. Chronic pain is not a harbinger of a disease, but the problem itself. To identify a pain as chronic, the pain must persist for at least 3-6 months. Chronic pain affects a person’s entire life. It can restrict daily activities and make the patient feel powerless. Pain that does not go away can also cause the person to take a depressed mood.
What Causes Pain?
Pain can be considered a harbinger of a condition that is not going well in different parts of the body. The condition that causes pain can be physical or psychological. Meaning of pain; It may vary according to the duration of the pain, the cause and the complaints it creates in the patient.
Acute pains usually mean that there is a tissue damage in the body. In this case, the pain may indicate a problem that needs to be investigated and treated. In case of acute pain, the patient should be examined and the condition causing the pain should be identified. In this case, the appropriate method of treatment is applied, aimed at eliminating pain.
What chronic pain means needs a slightly more complicated explanation. Chronic pain is a problem in itself. What needs to be treated in this case is the pain itself, rather than an underlying disease. Chronic pain generally presents in the following ways:
