Pain is your body’s way of telling you that something is wrong. It’s a warning sign. Each and every day millions of people experience pain at some point in their day, some even start and end their day in pain.
There are two types of pain: acute and chronic. Acute pain can be mild or severe and may be caused by a broken bone, bruise, sprain or even a cut. It is a new pain. Chronic pain is different. It can last for six months or more, and may be accompanied by exhaustion, insomnia, or weight changes.
Whatever the type of pain, some people resort to painkillers to alleviate the symptoms. On the surface, there is nothing wrong with getting rid of the pain, no one wants to live with discomfort. Taking pills to reduce the intensity of the pain often only masks the cause of the problem. Wouldn’t it be better to find the true cause and treat it directly? Of course it would.
