Frequently Asked Questions

What is Chronic Pain?

Most injuries come with pain. Those pain signals are your body’s way of telling you something is wrong, letting you know you need to stop doing a certain activity and allow that part of your body to heal. Normal injuries can take time to heal but, eventually, the pain goes away.

That’s not the case with chronic pain. When you have this ongoing condition, the nerves in your body continue sending pain signals. As a result, the pain can linger for months or even years. This has far-reaching ramifications on your physical well-being, your ability to perform certain tasks, your mental health, and more.

Chronic pain can range from mild to excruciating. If any of these symptoms linger for three months or more, it’s worth talking to a medical professional:

  • Regular aching or soreness
  • Shooting, stinging, or burning pain
  • Throbbing pain
  • Stiffness

What causes chronic pain?

A number of situations can cause chronic pain. In addition to injuries that don’t heal properly, you may experience chronic pain due to:

  • Nerve damage
  • Infections
  • Certain conditions, like fibromyalgia, arthritis, or endometriosis
  • Misalignment in the body, especially the spine
  • Migraines
