Most pain alleviates after an injury or illness. However, when pain lasts longer than the usual recovery period or occurs alongside a chronic health condition, it’s called Chronic Pain.
Chronic pain can fluctuate between slightly bothersome to excruciating and can be steady or intermittent. Pain is often an invisible condition, which makes it hard for people to understand. Those experiencing chronic pain can feel isolated and struggle with daily life.
We offer a variety of mental health and pain management services to help you find ease and relief. To learn more, schedule an informational call with one of our health navigators.
Chronic Pain can often lead to other challenges like Anxiety, Depression, Mood Swings, Fatigue, or Insomnia. A study from the journal Pain states that 60.8% of the subjects who reported Chronic Pain also had depression, most of them with “severe” level symptoms.
