Chronic Pain is pain that does not improve with time. It can be associated with a specific area of the body (for example, your neck), or, it can affect multiple parts of the body. There could be many causes for the onset of pain; over time, chronic pain can become an illness of its own.
Pain can have debilitating effects. Limitations on body functions, depression, and other side effects can reduce the quality of life. Today, pain impacts more individuals in America than diabetes, heart disease, and cancer combined. Chronic pain is the leading cause of long-term disability.
