Chronic pain is as real an ailment as any and is characterized by persistence. Defined simply, chronic pain is pain that is ongoing and which lasts longer than 12 weeks. In fact, signals of chronic pain tend to remain active in the nervous system for weeks, months and even years. A major misconception of chronic pain is that it is caused by some unrecognized injury, inflammation or disease, and requires rest for healing and relief. Recent advances, however, suggest that chronic pain is mostly a product of abnormal neural signalling, with biopsychosocial dimensions, and therefore requires a multimodal treatment approach.
