Pain Management

Persistent pain, commonly known as chronic pain, is typically defined as pain that endures for a prolonged period, extending beyond the normal time expected for tissue healing. In contrast to acute pain, which usually resolves as the underlying cause heals within a few months, persistent pain continues for weeks, months, or even years.

This type of pain can stem from various conditions, injuries, or diseases, affecting different parts of the body. It may also coexist with pain from other sources like muscle pain and joint pain. Managing persistent pain is often challenging, with medications providing limited relief. It can significantly impact a person’s daily life, influencing both physical and emotional well-being. It’s for these reasons a good pain management plan needs to be in place.

Conditions that may contribute to persistent pain include:

  • Musculoskeletal injuries or conditions: Soft tissue injury and conditions such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or fibromyalgia can result in persistent pain in joints, muscles, or connective tissues.
  • Neurological Conditions: Disorders like peripheral neuropathy, multiple sclerosis, or nerve compression.
  • Inflammatory Conditions: Inflammatory disorders like inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) or certain autoimmune diseases can be associated with chronic pain.
  • Persistent Pain Syndrome: In some cases, the pain itself becomes a chronic condition, persisting even after the initial injury or illness has resolved.
