IM电竞App官网都知道什么是痛苦，不是吗? Most of the time pain is fleeting, something we can deal with. It may be hard to believe, but acute pain such as this is a good thing, clinically speaking. Acute pain is a message from our body telling us something is wrong. 例如, 没有那个信号, we wouldn't know to snatch our hand away from a hot flame, the result of which would be a much more severe injury. 的 human body is rife with vulnerable targets - nerves, 骨头, 肌肉, and joints to name a few - where pain tells us something is wrong and needs attention.
慢性疼痛是不同的. 慢性疼痛持续的时间比自然愈合的时间更长，这与特定类型的损伤或疾病过程有关. Chronic pain lasts more than three months and doesn't go away, 通常需要某种形式的干预. 最常见的例子是背痛. Other examples would be leg, neck, or trigeminal nerve pain (along the jawline from the ear). Anything from sleeping on a bad mattress to stomach ulcers can cause chronic pain. 慢性疼痛的另一个方面是, though it may begin with a physical injury or illness, it can develop a psychological dimension once the physical problem is cured or heals.
Some pain management specialists focus on medicinal management of the patient, 而另一些则侧重于介入管理, (特别是在慢性背痛方面), using procedures such as epidural steroid injections, 小关节注射, and other procedures to provide relief for the patient. In cases where epidural steroid injections are recommended, 缓解可能是相对即时的, or over a week or so depending on the patient's pathology. If no relief is found, the pain management specialist re-evaluates and may re-inject if needed. 慢性疼痛管理的主要目的是以比手术更低的成本和更小的侵入性提供缓解.
Acute pain is another part of the pain management specialist's regime. Acute pain is sudden pain from fractures or other injuries. 在这些情况下, 专科医生可能会再次使用注射, 比如局部麻醉, 为了立即缓解, 或者神经阻滞, 能缓解24小时吗. If the pain is still acute after that time, the specialist may re-inject, if called for.
