CHRONIC PAIN

Acute pain typically occurs following an identifiable incident where an injury is sustained, such as a broken arm or sprained ankle. It is adaptive because it results in focused attention on a situation that is threatening. Acute pain is time-limited, diminishes with healing, and the cause usually is known.

Chronic pain, on the other hand, persists beyond the expected time and indicatedpoint of healing, and is typically defined as longer than 3 months duration.
