Pain that is constant, returns repeatedly, or lasts beyond the typical healing period is called chronic pain. Chronic pain can last for months, even years, and it can interfere with daily activities. It has been linked to depression and health complications.
A wide variety of conditions can lead to ongoing pain symptoms. The four primary types of chronic pain are:
Chronic pain can arise from nerve compression, nerve damage, degenerative nerve conditions, and other nerve problems.
Swelling, redness, and warmth are part of the natural inflammatory healing response. When inflammation doesn’t go away after a typical amount of time, it can cause ongoing pain.
Muscle pain is frequently the cause of chronic pain. It typically occurs due to traumatic injury or overuse.
When internal structures cause compression of soft tissue, chronic pain can arise. Mechanical pain can be caused by cysts and other internal growths, bony structures, repetitive motion injuries, and imbalances in your posture.
Some of the conditions that can result in chronic pain include:
