According to this WebMD article, around 100 million people are forced to endure the daily struggle caused by chronic pain. Acute pain can be relatively simple to relieve. Chronic pain, on the other hand, is an entirely different ordeal. Dealing with chronic pain becomes a lifestyle for many sufferers. Fortunately, Bruder Healthcare offers an assortment of products (LINK) to ease the everyday problems associated with chronic pain. So, what exactly is chronic pain? Whereas acute pain is sharp, severe, and immediate, the nature of chronic pain is quite the opposite. Chronic pain can start as acute pain, but the symptoms tend to remain long after an injury heals. By standard definition, chronic pain is any lingering pain that lasts longer than three months after it begins. It can be mild or excruciating, episodic or continuous, merely inconvenient or totally incapacitating. Headaches, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, neck pain, back aches, and nerve pain are common examples of pain that can become chronic over time, and which many people experience. Unfortunately for many sufferers of chronic pain, the direct symptoms and ailments are not the only ones that arise. In many instances chronic pain can lead to secondary problems, often affecting the mind. Because of the intrusiveness of chronic pain many people develop anxiety and stress, depression, chronic fatigue, and a weakened immune system as a result. Chronic pain often leads to brutal cycles of secondary symptoms; because of this, it is absolutely essential to find relief!
