Acute pain is sharp and instantaneous. It may develop from a recent injury, surgery, or medical illness. Just as this pain comes on quickly, it may also be managed swiftly.
Primary care physician may refer patients with acute pain to a pain management physician to help during healing.
Chronic pain, on the other hand, is persistent pain that builds with time. Chronic pain sufferers may also be referred to a pain management specialist from a primary care physician. Pain management physicians will determine the source and best treatment options to treat chronic pain.
