Pain

Pain is something that we have all experienced. Whether it’s from an injury, a headache, joint problems, carpal tunnel or even headaches. Pain is characterized by an unpleasant sensation and experience where damage occurs on the human body.

Pain can be divided into mild, moderate, severe. Pain can also be categorized into acute, chronic and cancer pain. The National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) sate that 11.2% – 25.3 million American adults experienced pain every day for the past three months. The American Academy of Pain Medicine state that the most common pain conditions are headaches (5.4%), back pain (3.2%), arthritis (2%).
