Acute pain is a type of pain that typically last less than 3 months or pain that is directly related to soft tissue damage such as a sprained ankle or a cut. Acute pain is of short duration but it gradually resolves as the injured tissues heal.

Chronic pain is often defined as any pain lasting more than 3 months. Whereas acute pain is a normal sensation that alerts us to possible injury; chronic pain is very different. Chronic pain persists often for months or even longer.
