Acute pain is pain that suddenly occurs yet doesn’t remain. It is often the result of an accident or injury that has caused damage to the tissues, such as a sprained wrist or ankle. It will typically go away after several weeks or months. However, acute pain can turn into chronic pain, especially when left untreated. For this reason, our chiropractor should address pain as quickly as possible.

Chronic pain is identified as pain that does not go away. If pain persists for three months or longer, it is considered chronic. It is often the result of nerve damage, arthritis, or a similar condition.

Regardless of whether you are experiencing acute or chronic pain, our chiropractor will identify the cause, consider the severity of your condition, and evaluate your overall health to determine the best course of action for pain relief and treatment.
