Chronic pain refers to pain that does not respond to the typical or common medical treatment.
Chronic pain refers to pain that does not respond to the typical or common medical treatment. Chronic pain physiotherapy treatment is different from the physiotherapy treatment offered to relieve short-lasting, acute pain that occurs after an injury. Treatments that generally work for acute pain do not often work for chronic pain. The pain is no longer coming from the injured area but instead from how the brain and body sense pain.
WHAT CAUSES CHRONIC PAIN?
Chronic pain persists or recurs over a period after acute tissue damage or accompanies non-healing injuries. It can be caused by chronic diseases (e.g., cancer, arthritis, diabetes), injuries (e.g., herniated disc, torn ligament), and many primary pain syndromes (e.g., neuropathic pain, fibromyalgia, chronic headache).
