1.2 How does it hurt? This is a useful question because once we know the mechanism of pain sensation we can do something about alleviating it. When tissue is injured there follows a rapid release of â€˜messengerâ€™ chemicals that stimulate the nerve endings.

It usually, but not always, also directs our attention to the site where the damaged tissue initiated the pain message.
