The Problem of Chronic Pain

Acute Pain:  We’ve all experienced this before. What happens in the body is the nerve fibres in your finger get activated very quickly (alpha fibres). They transmit the signal to another neuron in the spinal cord that crosses over and goes right up to the relay station in the brain. The signal then goes to the somatosensory cortex and we feel pain. As the tissue damage heals the pain decreases and after about a week there's no more tissue damage and there's no more pain.
