Understanding your body pain

Understanding your body pain is not only critical to helping you find the best way to treat pain, but it could also help speed your recovery or help manage it. Before reaching for a pain relief treatment, it is useful to understand what pain is, why it occurs, what it means, and the best ways to manage it.
