Inflammation and chronic pain, acupuncture releases chronic pain

Inflammation is a body defense process to protect itself from harmful stimuli. It is not infection. Inflammation does not necessarily mean that there is an infection, but an infection can cause inflammation. Inflammation is a part of the immune response. The immune system recognized harmful stimuli such as damaged the cells, gems, pathogens etc. and initiate the healing process. Inflammation can cause uncomfortable signs and symptoms, but it is essential part of the healing process. Without it, infections, wounds, and any damage to tissue would not be able to heal. When the healing process is finished, the inflammation would disappear. However in some circumstances, the inflammation can persist longer than necessary, becoming chronic and causing more harm than benefit. The signs of inflammation include redness, swelling, heat, pain and loss of function. Redness occurs due to increased blood flow to the area; Swelling is caused by buildup of fluid in the area; heat is again due to increased blood flow to the area; Pain is caused by the accumulated chemicals in the area which stimulate nerve endings.

Chronic inflammation refers to inflammation that last for over three months and it can last for years. It commonly results from failure to get rid of an acute inflammation or persistent exposure to particular stimuli.
