What is Acute Pain?
Acute pain is distinguished as being of recent onset, transient and usually from an identifiable cause.

Chronic or persistent pain can be described as ongoing or recurrent pain, lasting beyond the usual course of acute illness or injury or more than three to six months which adversely affects the individual’s well being. It is pain that continues when it should not.
