Pain is a common symptom of wounds; it can result from the wound itself (neuropathic pain), wound treatments (nociceptive pain), or be anticipatory.1 Research has demonstrated that pain can have a negative impact on wound healing as it has been shown to contribute to stress, anxiety and depression. 2 Specifically, many studies have shown that pain and stress can contribute to the delayed healing of wounds,3-5 including biopsy wounds, acute wounds, surgical wounds and chronic wounds
