Chronic pain is pain that persists past what is considered the normal healing time. Pain is usually regarded as chronic when it lasts or recurs for more than 3 to 6 months. Chronic pain is a frequent condition, affecting an estimated 20% of people worldwide. Chronic pain can result from a multitude of injuries and medical conditions.
Chronic pain is different from the temporary pain you feel when you hurt yourself. With chronic pain, you may not know why you are hurting. Your pain may affect your whole body and your mind, causing problems that ripple through every part of your life. But there is hope—get in touch with the specialists at the Comprehensive Pain Institute today.
