Pain Management Q & A

What causes chronic pain?

Chronic pain is typically defined as ongoing discomfort that occurs for at least three consecutive months. You can develop chronic pain because of an injury or a health condition, including:

  • Nerve compression, such as sciatica or carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Automobile accident injuries, such as whiplash
  • Occupational injuries, including slips and falls
  • Podiatric issues, such as plantar fasciitis 
  • Sports injuries, including muscle sprains 
  • Arthritic conditions, like osteoarthritis 
  • Broken bones or stress fractures 
  • Fibromyalgia or neuropathy 

If you have headaches or migraines on most days of the month, your physician may diagnose you with a chronic pain-causing condition. You can even suffer from chronic pain because of cancer or cancer treatments. 

No matter what’s causing your chronic pain or how minor or severe your symptoms become, you can benefit from innovative pain management therapies.
