What is Chronic Pain?
Every Pain that grows beyond a 6-month period is chronic pain.
Chronic pain problems have two categories:
- pain that is due to an identifiable generator (an injury, for instance)
- pain that does not have an identifiable generator (pain which occurs after an injury has healed, for example)
What Causes Chronic Pain?
The common question still is this, why do some people have chronic pain, but others do not? No particular answer can be given to that, as it is still unclear the reason why this is so.
Avoiding the development of chronic pain by all means requires that the acute pain be treated before it has a chance to become chronic.
