when does adrenaline ward off pain?

from what i've gathered, it applies to stab wounds and major trauma, such as a bite wound from a shark. i have not heard that it would ever apply to burns. i wonder what kind of situations it applies to. when do you not feel immediate pain when you're injured? i'm guessing everything that has to do with just the epidermis won't be applicable. that the injury has to be deeper than that to warrant the pain dulling effect adrenaline gives. thoughts?

When you are a physically active person you rarely notice minor injuries.

Mostly has to do with adrenaline.

Actually didn't feel much pain when my motorcycle accident happened.. not until far far later.

My nephew broke his ankle in a high school football game,
It was towards the end of it, but he finished the game.. Was hard to believe that he could

Strange isn’t it, I’ve heard a story once about a man who accidentally cut his arm off at work and they didn’t know for a few seconds and then seen it on the floor. It hit them.

I think the adrenaline also induces the release of endorphins, which adds to the blocking of the perception of pain.
