Understanding Different Types of Pain
Pain is a complex and subjective phenomenon that can be difficult to address. Before we develop a treatment plan, we conduct a variety of exams and tests to identify the nature of your pain. Typically, chronic pain can be classified into two primary categories:
Everyday Pain (Nociceptive Pain)
Imagine this as the pain you might feel after a minor injury or when something swells up. It could be a sharp, dull, or achy feeling. There are two kinds of everyday pain: one that's more on the surface (like your skin, muscles, bones, or joints) and another that's deeper inside your belly and can affect your organs.
Nerve Pain (Neuropathic Pain)
Nerve pain is what you might experience if your nerves get hurt or damaged. It can feel like burning, or sometimes make you super sensitive, like your skin is extra ticklish. People often describe it as sharp, like lightning, stabbing, burning, or even a strange numbness, tingling, or weakness sensation. It's a bit different from everyday pain, and we're here to help you manage it.
