When an injury occurs, pain signals are sent from the injured area along the spinal cord and then to the brain. As the injury begins to heal, pain usually becomes less severe. However, chronic pain is different. The body continues to send pain signals to the brain, even if the injury has healed. Chronic pain can last several weeks to several years. It limits mobility and makes it very challenging to get through daily tasks and participate in normal activities. Chronic pain may feel dull or sharp and be steady or intermittent. In addition, it can occur in any part of the body.
Common types of chronic pain include lower back pain, arthritis pain and neurogenic pain. Usually, chronic pain is caused by an injury, such as a pulled muscle or back sprain. Many medical professionals feel that chronic pain develops from damaged nerves.
