Chronic Pain

Chronic pain ranges from mild to severe discomfort that is present for longer than three months. Caused by anything from injury, infections, illnesses, arthritis, and nerve damage, chronic pain might be activated by internal nerve receptors or external damage to the nervous system. Treatments are varied and dependent on individual cases, but include medication, acupuncture, physical therapy, mind-body therapies such as hypnosis and meditation, massage, chiropractic, herbal medicine, and Reiki.
