Chronic pain and its effect on quality of life
Chronic pain is characterized by persistent discomfort that lingers far beyond the expected healing period. It can manifest due to various underlying conditions, including arthritis, nerve damage, prior injuries, or surgical procedures. This type of pain can affect any part of your body, from the back, neck, and shoulders to the hips, joints, and beyond. Often, it leads to physical limitations and emotional distress.
Chronic pain isn't just a physical ailment; it has a significant impact on your overall quality of life. It can impede your ability to work, enjoy your favorite activities, and maintain your well-being. Additionally, it can contribute to conditions such as depression and anxiety, gradually eroding your overall quality of life.
