Is pain impacting your life or the life of someone you love?
If so, you are not alone. Approximately 50 million Americans suffer from chronic pain. A few key characteristics of chronic pain are:
- It is ongoing or recurrent.
- It lasts beyond the usual course of an acute illness or injury or more than 3 to 6 months.
- It often negatively impacts an individual’s well-being.
Chronic pain varies in intensity and frequency. Some experience chronic pain constantly while others only feel it in episodes.
In addition to physical effects, chronic pain can have psychological effects, such as fatigue, mood changes, stress, anxiety, depression, irritability, or restless nights of sleep.
