What is Chronic Pain? 

Chronic pain is pain that persists over time, often for months or even longer, and typically results from longstanding medical conditions of damage to the body. Your body will continue to hurt for weeks, months, or even years after the injury. Chronic pain can affect your day-to-day life as well as your mental health. This difficulty in executing essential and enjoyable activities can often lead to disability and depression. However, it is something that can be treated. Chronic pain may arise from an initial injury, i.e., back sprain, or from health problems, such as fatigue, sleep disturbance, and decreased appetite. Chronic pain can range anywhere from mild to severe and can often feel like a dull ache, throbbing, burning, shooting, squeezing, stinging, and stiffness.
