Generally, chronic pain is pain that lingers for more than 6 months. It may be mild or severe, constant or episodic. Such pain often results from impact injuries such as:
- Motor Vehicle Accidents;
- Snowmobile Accidents;
- ATV Accidents; and
- Bicycle Collisions.
Chronic pain can be traumatic and life-altering. Those suffering from accident-related chronic pain suffer doubly. First, they suffer from pain that is nearly always present, but may become unbearable at unpredictable moments. Second, they suffer from the fact that those around them cannot see their injury; because chronic pain sufferers can often engage in normal day-to-day tasks, such as attending work, people may doubt the truth of their pain.
Though your pain may be invisible to others, it is very real, with real consequences. Chronic pain often leads to chronic fatigue, which may prevent you from meaningfully participating in your professional and personal life.
