What causes acute and chronic pain?

Acute and chronic pain can have various root causes, which may include:

  • Injuries
  • Infections
  • Inflammation
  • Nerve damage
  • Underlying medical conditions
  • Genetic factors

Acute pain often arises suddenly in response to an injury or illness and typically resolves as the underlying cause heals.

In contrast, chronic pain may persist for an extended period, often beyond the expected healing time. Factors like nerve sensitization, psychological factors, or ongoing tissue damage may influence it.

What treatments are involved with pain management?

Treatment approaches in pain management draw from diverse traditions, including traditional medical techniques from China, Japan, and Korea, as well as Western medicine. These may include interventions such as:

  • Acupuncture
  • Acupressure
  • Herbal remedies
  • Massage therapy

How long do the results of pain management treatments last?

The duration of pain management treatment results varies depending on factors such as the underlying cause of pain, your response to treatment, and the specific interventions Dr. Wu uses. 

Some treatments may provide immediate relief that lasts hours or days, while others may require ongoing therapy to maintain the benefits over time. The lifestyle modifications you make, plus continued self-care practices, can also impact the sustaining effects of pain management treatments in the long term.
