what is inflammatory pain?
Inflammation is our body's response to harmful stimuli. The goal is to remove these harmful stimuli, and start the healing process.
When something irritating or harmful affects a part of our body, there is a biological response to try to remove it.
Inflammation can cause pain because the swelling pushes against the sensitive nerve endings, which send pain signals to the brain.
Other biochemical processes also occur during inflammation , and they affect how nerves behave, which is another cause of inflammatory pain.
The pain is more felt as an ache.
Chronic inflammatory pain is seen in autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis or ankylosing spondylitis.
