Functional Medicine Explained

Chronic Pain

Chronic Pain: Everyone feels pain from time to time. Cutting your finger or pulling a muscle, pain is your body’s way of telling you something is wrong. The injury heals, you stop hurting.

Chronic pain works differently. The body keeps hurting weeks, months, or even years after the injury. Doctors define chronic pain as any pain that lasts for 3 to 6 months or more. Chronic pain can effect your day to day life and mental health. Pain comes from a series of messages that run through the nervous system. When hurt, the injury turns on pain sensors in that area. They send a message in the form of an electrical signal, which travels from nerve to nerve until it reaches the brain. The brain processes the signal and sends out the message that the body is hurt.

Under normal circumstances the signal stops when the cause of pain is resolved, the body repairs the wound on the finger or a torn muscle. But with chronic pain, the nerve signals keep firing even after the injury is healed.

Conditions that cause chronic pain can begin without any obvious cause. But for many, it starts after an injury or because of a health condition. Some of the leading causes:

Arthritis

Back problems

Fibromyalgia, a condition in which people feel muscle pain throughout their bodies

Infections

Migraines and other headaches

Nerve damage

Past injuries or surgeries

Symptoms

The pain can range from mild to severe and can continue day after day or come and go. It can feel like:

A dull ache

Burning

Shooting

Soreness

Squeezing

Stiffness

Stinging

Throbbing
