Pain is of two kinds. One is physical pain the other is mental pain. Mental pain is always related to our experiences and our external and internal reaction to it. One more strata can be stated here, that is how others imply the same upon us. We experience physical pain when we undergone a simple surgical procedure or a major one in any part of our body.

Healing is the process whereby cells in the body regenerate and repair to reduce the site of a damaged or necrotic area. Healing incorporates both the removal of necrotic tissue and replacement of this tissue. Healing uses mixture of both mechanisms either by regeneration or by replacement. Healing must happen by repair in the case of injury to cells that are unable to regenerate (e.g. cardiac muscles or neurons). Also, damage to the collagen network, or total collapse cause healing to take place by repair only.
