What is pain?
Although pain makes us uncomfortable, it has a very important
protective function. Pain is part of the body’s self-defence mechanism.
When we experience pain, it is a sign that something is amiss.
It is nature’s way to tell us to take care of a particular
part of your body to avoid further injury.

You can manage the pain that comes from inflammation in a number
of ways. The first step is to identify the nature of your pain.
Seek medical advice from your doctor or pharmacist to help you
determine why you have pain and how you relieve its symptoms.
