Clinical pain is pain which requires and benefits from medical treatment (Sarafino, 2006). The treatment of acute clinical pain is necessary for humane patient care as well as for promoting uncomplicated recovery. In treating acute clinical pain patient stress is greatly reduced thus contributing to increased healing times and overall positive emotional well being of the patient. In cases where pain has become chronic a more complex and comprehensive plan of pain treatment must be implemented. These comprehensive approaches can often include the multi-angle approach including surgical, pharmacological, behavioral and cognitive treatment designed to best benefit the patient on an individual basis (Sarafino, 2006).
