Chronic pain is any type of pain that lasts for months or even years following an accident, injury, or illness. The sensation of pain comes from your nervous system. If you hurt yourself, pain sensors in the area send an electric message to your brain. Usually, these pain signals turn off once the source of an injury heals. However, if your pain is chronic, your nerve signals continue to fire, even after they’ve healed.

If necessary, they might also order a series of X-rays or ask you to perform some in-office exercises to get a better look at your musculoskeletal structure, posture, and gait. After gathering all of this information, they can make a treatment recommendation that helps you feel better.
