What is Pain?
Pain is a condition of mild to severe discomfort. Pain is a symptom of disease or injury. Some diseases cause sudden and severe pain while others cause long-lasting disabling pain. All types of pain are subjective and can be measured and reported only by the person experiencing it.
Pain can be sorted into three main types: Acute pain, Chronic pain, Cancer pain
Acute pain alerts you that something is wrong with your body. Infections, injuries or cancer are common causes of acute pain. A variety of treatments are available for acute pain. Acute pain generally is relieved when the problem causing the pain is treated medically or surgically.
Chronic pain is a long-lasting discomfort that has no relation to warning of danger and leads to a major change in a person’s ability to function. Arthritis pain and low back pain are examples of chronic pain.
Cancer pain is a side effect of cancer. Cancer pain should be aggressively treated whether the cancer is treatable or not.
Five Critical Features for Relaxation

Position: To learn progressive relaxation, all parts of your body must be comfortably supported. Find a bed, a couch, or a recliner.
Clothing: Wear loose clothing.
Time: Designate about fifteen minutes daily. Try to schedule a fixed time everyday so you won’t forget to do your progressive relaxation.
Focus: Try to focus on the particular sensations that come from letting go of tension.
