Chronic pain is characterized by pain that persists for three to six months or more after an injury has occurred and can come in many different forms. Regular treatment or medication to manage the pain is often needed to make it more bearable.
This ongoing process of pain and suffering can take a significant toll on a person’s physical and emotional health and can lead to mental health issues such as depression or anxiety. In some cases, the chronic pain and associated symptoms can affect your ability to work.
Chronic pain often develops from soft tissue injuries which are the most common injuries suffered in motor vehicle accidents. These include sprains, sprains or tears of muscles, ligaments or tendons and can occur from even the most minor accidents.
While soft tissue injuries can be quite treatable, for those individuals who develop chronic pain, treatment and recovery can become much more difficult.
