To live with pain it helps to understand what really is happening in the body.
Scientists are now starting to say that chronic pain itself may start as a symptom but can become a disease. Initially pain will commence with some type of trauma or other condition to the body but for many, even if the initial cause has healed, the pain can remain.
Similarly with chronic painful conditions, pain itself will become yet another condition to deal with, not just a symptom and current methods to reduce chronic pain often fail. As I have had to learn to deal and manage chronic pain myself, I can help guide you also as well as treating.
