Chronic pain can be felt anywhere in the body. The pain experienced is often feelings of discomfort, aching, burning, soreness, with other symptoms including fatigue, trouble sleeping, change in mood, anxiety, stress, and fear. This pain can develop from an illness, trauma, or injury as a result of an accident. It can also develop from no discernible illness, trauma, or injury, but from psychological injuries such as depression, anxiety, or bipolar disorder.
Even after an injury has seemingly healed, individuals may continue to feel pain in specific areas. This pain may persist for days, weeks, years, or in worst-case scenarios, for life. This poses increased barriers to individuals whose pain is no longer supported by objective data but continues to affect them in their everyday life. The most common causes of chronic pain are due to injuries sustained from motor vehicle accidents, as well as slip and fall accidents.
