Pain is a word that has been used when your body physically hurts. For example, when you stub your toe, hit your elbow, or scrape your knee. Ways we can describe physical pain is the ways our body feels. Feelings of throbbing, aching, or burning. Pain doesn’t have a time limit, it could be acute pain- meaning only a short period of time. Or chronic pain- which could last longer, up to months.
Provide support to manage pain and discomfort (HSC 2003) 1. It is important that we take into consideration, areas other than physical pain and have an holistic approach. Pain is whatever the person who is suffering it feels it to be. Physical pain can be experienced as a result of disease or injury, or some other form of bodily distress. For example childbirth. Although not associated with injury or disease, but can be an extremely painful experience. Pain can also be social, emotional and spiritual as well as just physical.

II. PAIN: Pain not only involves the physical reaction to damaged tissue, but also involves an emotional and cognitive response by the person experiencing the pain (Backer, 1994). A person's prior experience will influence how pain is managed. Pain is a signal that something is not
many of our fellow creatures are more like us than we have ever imagined. They feel pain, suffer and experience stress, affection, excitement and even love…” (1). This statement can also be proven through science. Just like humans, animals also have “the same types of nociceptors… A-delta and C fibers...” (Victoria Braithwaite 1). These nociceptors are used to detect pain. If animals display many of the same qualities as humans and feel pain, they should be treated more humanely.
Animals can feel pain just as humans do. When scientist talk about the similarities between humans and animals they do not consider the similarity of the pain. Believe it or not animals
What is pain? The word pain consists of many definitions. It can be both mental and physical. Losing a loved one can result in mental pain, while physical pain is usually caused by external and internal injuries. Pain differs depending on the source. There are some that even argue that pain is just a fabric of our imagination.
Pain. A word, a feeling we all flinch from, avoid at all costs. We hope for a smooth life, not one riddled with trials and suffering. And rightfully so. Pain hurts, whether physically or mentally. It makes us feel sad or helpless, feelings no one wants to experience. But, despite all our efforts, pain always finds a way to borrow into our lives. It can’t be stopped, merely delayed in some instances. It can show up as, say, a broken arm, or even the death of someone close to us. We can try to prevent these with all the resources and knowledge at our disposal, but at some point, pain will reach you. Now, this does not mean that we must automatically succumb to the suffering. In fact, it means quite the opposite. If pain is inevitable,

Administering different types of drugs, infecting innocent and defenseless animals with diseases, poisoning, implantations, and causing brain damage are just some of the many horrifying elements of what animal experimentation truly is. Cosmetics, cleaning supplies, and personal care products are only a small fraction of the many products used frequently
The International Association for the Study of Pain defined pain as “an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience with actual or potential tissue damage, or described in terms of such damage” (Unk, 2007). Pain being described such as this allows us to see that pain is a perception, not unlike seeing or hearing. Pain is the most common reason that people seek medical attention but pain is very hard to define because it is subjective. Pain perception is the process by which a painful stimulus is relayed from the site of stimulation to the central nervous system (Freudenrich, 2008). In order to determine if pain is a perception of the mind or if it is biological we must first understand how the process of pain works.
Pain The International Association for the Study of Pain defines pain as “an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage, or described in terms of such damage” (1979). Pain is actually the culprit behind warranting a visit to a physician office for many people (Besson, 1999). Notoriously unpleasant, pain could also pose a threat as both a psychological and economic burden (Phillips, 2006). Sometimes pain does happen without any damage of tissue or any likely diseased state. The reasons for such pain are poorly understood and the term used to describe such type of pain is “psychogenic pain”. Also, the loss of productivity and daily activity due to pain is also significant. Pain engulfs a trillion dollars of GDP for lost work time and disability payments (Melnikova, 2010). Untreated pain not only impacts a person suffering from pain but also impacts their whole family. A person’s quality of life is negatively impacted by pain and it diminishes their ability to concentrate, work, exercise, socialize, perform daily routines, and sleep. All of these negative impacts ultimately lead to much more severe behavioral effects such as depression, aggression, mood alterations, isolation, and loss of self-esteem, which pose a great threat to human society.
