Chronic pain is defined as pain that lasts longer than six months. It can be mild or excruciating, episodic or continuous, merely inconvenient or totally incapacitating.
The most common sources of pain stem from headaches, joint pain, pain from injury, and backaches. Other kinds of chronic pain include tendinitis,and pain affecting specific parts of the body, such as the shoulders, and neck.
There are studies that show the longer the time in pain, the less chance of return to functional activities. If your current treatment is not helpful, do not delay to seek another opinion for your treatment options, or to obtain a correct diagnosis or pain definition.
