Pain Management New Melle, MO: Getting to Know Your Pain

Pain is a sensation we experience when our peripheral nervous system communicates information from the receptors that extend out through the body to the brain. Understanding the nature of your pain can help your New Melle, MO physical therapist or other pain management doctor effectively treat your pain at the source and allow you to regain peak movement health.

As someone living with pain and a perspective pain management patient, it helps to understand pain as a general topic and the type of pain you are experiencing. Pain is usually categorized as either acute or chronic.

  • Acute pain: limited in duration, most often a result of injury or damage to tissue in the body
  • Chronic pain: longer-lasting pain, more often originated from factors other than tissue injury or damage such as chronic inflammation, nerve sensitivity changes, strong emotions, prior traumatic injury, and changes that occur in the brain

Acute pain is categorized by:

  • pain that lasts less than 3 months
  • the sensation of pain is local to the injured area
  • accompanied by swelling, warmth, and redness
  • tied to an injury or specific physical trauma
  • pain that worsens when agitated, and decreased pain when the factor causing the pain is removed; if you have a knee injury, you may feel additional pain when shifting weight onto that leg, but feel some relief when you remove the weight from that leg with crutches or when elevating it

Chronic pain symptoms include:

  • pain that lingers for longer than 3 months
  • not readily attributed to an injury
  • widespread pain
  • unpredictable degrees of pain that are not consistent with a specific motion or activity
  • hypersensitivity to even minor pain triggers
  • may be accompanied by psychological health concerns such as depression, fear, or anxiety
