Acute pain is pain generally directly related to soft tissue damage done through sport or day-to-day living such as a sprained ankle, small muscle tear or muscle strain. With acute pain, once the injury has healed, the pain stops. This type of pain is caused by inflammation in the tissue and nerves at the site of and around the injury.

The Acupuncture Evidence Project indicates acupuncture is an effective form of treatment for post operative pain, low back pain and headaches.
