Pain is your body’s way of letting you know something isn’t working the way it is supposed to be. Chronic pain is when the pain fails to subside, and the signals of pain remain active in the nervous system for months or even years. This can take both a physical and emotional toll on a person. The causes of chronic pain can come from many different sources including disease or injury. Common sources of pain most often stem from headaches, joint pain, pain from injury, and backaches. Other kinds of pain that can become chronic include tendinitis, sinus pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and generalized muscle or nerve pain.
