Pain is an unfortunate part of life which may be caused by either an acute or chronic condition. Most types of pain are felt when nerve endings, known as nociceptors, sense something is wrong. In response, the nociceptors send messages to other nerves, which transfer the messages to the brain and spinal cord almost instantly.
Pain can result from disease, trauma, surgery, abnormalities of the nervous system or an undiagnosed cause. When pain persists, becomes unmanageable or leads to a chronic pain syndrome, special treatment from a pain medicine physician is recommended for the patient’s health and well-being.
