WHAT IS ACUTE PAIN?

Acute pain is short-term pain that's often described as a physical sensation such as stabbing, burning, twisting, tearing, or squeezing. It may be a signal that your body is experiencing—or has experienced—some type of tissue damage.

Acute pain may result from minor injuries, including:

Interact with the icons to learn about strains, sprains, and bruises.

  • Strains

    Strains occur when a tendon or muscle is stretched too far. Tendons connect muscles to bones.

  • Sprains

    Sprains happen when a ligament is stretched too far and are most common in the ankles and wrists. Ligaments connect bones and support joints.

  • Bruises

    Bruises are the result of blunt impact against the skin. They're also called "contusions."

If you're experiencing pain from any of these injuries, talk with your doctor about treatment options.

Ask your doctor if FLECTOR Patch is right for you.
