Chronic pain occurs when changes in our nervous system cause ongoing painful sensations beyond the expected time of tissue healing. Most chronic pain begins following an injury, tissue destructive disease, or surgical procedure. Too many people believe that they are condemned to suffer with chronic pain.
You’re not alone. In fact, some estimates place the burden of chronic pain at over 100 million Americans. The good news is that there are a variety of treatments available, to help you live a better life despite your pain. Effective pain management uses multiple approaches (pharmacological, interventional, and behavioral) to reduce pain, alleviate suffering, and restore function
