An estimated 70 million Americans suffer from chronic pain. Chronic pain is a major medical condition distinctly different from and more complex than acute pain. Whereas acute pain is a normal sensation triggered in the nervous system to alert the body to possible injury, chronic pain is a state in which pain persists, for many months or years, beyond the normal course required by healing. The effects, both economic and personal, associated with chronic pain can be significant. They include loss of income; debt from costly medical treatment; impaired mobility; and anxiety and depression. The causes of chronic pain are not always clear. Past traumatic injuries, congenital conditions, cancer, arthritis or other disorders may seem to be obvious culprits, but, in many cases, finding the source of chronic pain is difficult. This makes it hard to treat, so pain management usually takes a multidisciplinary approach.
