Pain medicine (or pain management) specialists treat all types of pain. Acute pain is described as severe or sharp and may signal something is wrong. The pain experienced during dental work is an example of acute pain. Pain lasting 6 months or longer is defined as chronic. This type of pain varies from mild to severe and is consistent. Arthritis pain is often chronic. Although chronic pain is difficult to manage, combining different treatments often produces a good outcome.
