Think about the last time you experienced pain. According to a market research report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc., more than 1.5 billion people worldwide suffer from chronic pain of varying degrees. An estimated 100 million adults are burdened by chronic pain in the U.S. alone. You may have a chronic condition if you are among the millions of Americans who have suffered from pain for several months or longer.


What Is Chronic Pain?

Aching, pulsing, throbbing, shooting, and dull are some of the dozens of words that describe the pain. Acute pain is a normal sensation triggered in the nervous system to alert you to possible injury. When suffering from a chronic condition, pain signals keep firing in the nervous system for weeks, months, or even years.


 

What Causes Chronic Pain?

Some chronic pain can be traced to an initial mishap, sprained back, severe infection, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and fibromyalgia. These are all well-known culprits. But trickier causes of chronic pain can also be attributed to cancer, multiple sclerosis, stomach ulcers, and complications from HIV/Aids.

One of the most voiced conditions is back pain. Back pain can be caused by years of poor posture, improper lifting and carrying, obesity, and traumatic injury. With guidance from a pain management practice, you can begin addressing your chronic back pain with a medication regimen and fitness. Yoga and stretching are excellent ways to help alleviate pain, but you should consult a physician before starting any wellness regimen.
