Pain is an individual experience. It can't be seen or measured and is as unique as a fingerprint. Acute pain, such as from a broken bone or recovery from surgery, is usually short-term and typically has no lasting effect.
Chronic pain continues for an extended period of time and may affect work, relationships and self-esteem.
