Chronic pain is pain that lasts for more than three months, or a length of time that it greater than the normal healing time.
Chronic pain can be caused by a number of different factors, including injury and surgery.
For those who have suffered serious injuries or medical conditions, chronic pain is a part of their everyday life. This can cause difficulties with sleep and affect how they interact with others. Anxiety and depression are common secondary injuries experienced by those who are suffering from chronic pain.
Sufferers of chronic pain are usually impacted financially, particularly if their injuries affect their ability to work or perform domestic chores. The cost of treatment is also an expense that can be significant, particularly if the injured person requires ongoing pain relief medication and treatment at a multidisciplinary clinic.
It is important that sufferers of chronic pain are properly compensated for their injuries to accommodate the financial impact on their lives.
