The doctors at Lansing Orthopedics treat two kinds of pain, acute and chronic. Acute pain is the easiest to treat. This type of pain typically has an easily identifiable cause, and usually requires transient medication to correct the problem.
In contrast chronic pain is harder to diagnose and treat. This type of pain is typically caused by conditions which take a long time to reverse. Examples of these types of diseases include cancer, neuropathy, and referred pain.
