Chronic pain is a misunderstood and often misdiagnosed disease for which there is often little sympathy. Various ailments will give the tale tell sign to others that you are in pain, like a broken bone in a cast. However, pain from a bad back rarely gets as much sympathy. Chronic pain frequently carries a stigma, and misperceptions of laziness or pain killer addictions follow. Often misunderstood, chronic pain is very real.

Where acute pain is the response to an injury which can last until the injury is healed. Chronic pain persists, sometimes long after the injury has healed. In some cases, the injury never heals, causing an almost constant state of pain.

Many people live with pain every day. In fact, one in ten Americans is expected to suffer from chronic pain at some point in their life. Chances are you may have chronic pain or know someone who does. If you have suffered from the same type of pain for more than a few months or for much longer than expected, chances are that you have chronic pain. Unlike acute pain, which subsides, chronic pain can disrupt your daily routine, prevent you from working or cause feelings of hopelessness and anxiety. All Injury Rehab & Chiropractic Chiropractors consider pain chronic if it has lasted for 3-6 months, and is interfering with your quality of life.
