Body pain can affect us in a wide variety of ways, ranging from slight discomfort to complete incapacitation. Pain can affect us mentally, physically, and even emotionally. Everyone knows what it’s like to feel pain. It can take many forms, from the sting of a burn to the constant ache of arthritis.
