Abstract

Pain is an unpleasant sensation but indeed it is one of the vital alarm systems in human body. It helps in the recognition of various stimuli of intensities that could be potentially harmful to the tissue. In comparison to shortlasting acute pain, chronic pain persists even after the resolution of the initial cause and often loses its protective value, rather producing unwanted effects. Pain of any origin, if it persists,may become resistant to standard treatments, greatly affecting the patients’ quality of life.Therefore, advancing our understanding of the pathogenesis of chronic pain is crucial to identify novel therapeutic approaches. There are several therapeutic approaches which are used for the effective management of pain including use of drugs and alternate measures. The use
