Pain Management is the process of providing medical care that alleviates or reduces pain. Mild or moderate pain can usually be treated with analgesic medications, such as aspirin, Aleve, and/or Tylenol. For chronic or severe pain, controlled prescriptions may be used and monitored closely.
Chronic pain is defined as pain that has lasted longer than three to six months, though some theorists and researchers have placed the transition from acute to chronic pain at 12 months. Others apply acute to pain that lasts less than 30 days, chronic to pain of more than six months duration, and sub-acute to pain that lasts from one to six months. A popular alternative definition of chronic pain, involving no arbitrarily fixed durations is "pain that extends beyond the expected period of healing"
