Chronic Pain Defined
Chronic can be defined as any pain that lasts for longer than 12 weeks and is often characterized by outlasting the usual healing process.
SUPPORT FOR INDIVIDUALS LIVING WITH CHRONIC PAIN
A Paradox Revealed
A paradox is revealed when people living with chronic pain appear "normal" to others.
We Must Carry On
When individuals try to carry on as though they are not in pain, it can increase pain levels and lead to depression, fear and anxiety.
Working Towards A Common Goal
Joining a support group of others who share common experience can help ease fatigue, fear, anxiety and depression.
