Pain is a common but unpleasant experience that can be localised or diffuse, temporary or chronic, and feel intense or mild. It can hamper our ability to move as well as create emotional and mental issues.
The most common types of pain experienced are headaches, back pain, joint pain, and injury related pain such as musculoskeletal injuries. Common types of chronic pain include tendinitis, sinus pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, generalised pain, and location specific pain such as the neck, shoulders, and pelvis.
Pain can cause physical, emotional, and mental effects. We feel pain physically due to pain impulses that are sent to the brain through nerve fibres. Emotional effects from pain including anxiety, stress, depression, and frustration can exacerbate the pain felt and decrease our body’s immune system.
