Chronic Pain Management
Pain is the body’s way of letting you know that something is wrong. Pain can appear suddenly or build slowly over time, ranging from mild and intermittent to severe and persistent. The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) indicates that acute pain, left untreated, can lead to chronic pain. According to Drs. Angela Koestler and Ann Myers, authors ofUnderstanding Chronic Pain, chronic pain disables more people than cancer or heart disease.
