Acute vs. Chronic Conditions

Illnesses and injuries can generally be divided into two types: acute and chronic. Acute conditions are those that occur suddenly and require prompt treatment (e.g., colds, sinus infections, fractures, and sprains). Once these acute illnesses and injuries are properly treated, they typically resolve within a short amount of time (often just days or weeks).

Chronic conditions, on the other hand, tend to develop more gradually and last for a longer period of time (e.g., diabetes, high cholesterol, and hypertension). Chronic illnesses and injuries require ongoing medical care.
