Chronic Pain Treatments
- Chronic pain generally refers to pain that does not respond to the typical forms of medical management. Having pain that is constant and persists can create a number of problems. If pain continues for a period longer than 2-3 months, it can then be classified as chronic pain.
- Chronic pain is physically and psychologically stressful and difficult to deal with. Coping with a chronic pain may require over-the-counter or prescription medication, physical therapy and/or psychological treatment. You should consult with a professional to help build the necessary skills needed to manage chronic pain.
