Acute pain is adaptive and protective and usually abates with physical recovery. In comparison, chronic pain is defined by the persistence of pain beyond the usual healing time, usually beyond 3 months. Unlike acute pain, chronic pain typically has no adaptive purpose and the onset and cause may be unclear. It can evolve into an entrenched, self-perpetuating cycle of psychological distress and suffering.
