Pain can be acute (onset within hours or days) or chronic (lasting weeks, months or years).
It's important to recognise which type of pain you have, as well as understand what can be done to help.
If you have acute pain, see your Pharmacist, doctor or nurse straightaway. Examples of acute pain include pain from a broken arm, muscle strain or a bee sting.
Common treatment for acute pain is medication, RICE (rest, ice, compression, elevation), physiotherapy and/or a support such as a brace or a cast.
Pain that lasts longer than 3 months is referred to as chronic or persistent pain. Examples include pain from arthritis, past injuries, illness or ongoing health conditions.
Treatment for chronic pain includes managing stress, maintaining a healthy weight, medication, exercise, and/or self-help programmes that help you develop strategies for difficult situations.
If pain is a frustration in your life, talk with your local Life Pharmacist. They can offer advice and suggestions for managing your pain and getting the care that’s right for you.
