‘An unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage or described in terms of such damage’ – Definition of pain by the International Association for the Study of Pain.
Persistent or chronic pain is a label that can be given to pain that lasts longer than three months. One of the key aspects of persistent pain is that it is no longer just a symptom of a pathology or injury process. The longer pain persists, the more complex it becomes in its construction, with careful attention to the initial tissue damage alongside the effects on the entire system.
Persistent pain is a complex entity
Persistent pain is a complex entity that results from the collaboration and competition of information from a multitude of sources. It is important that we address these interrelated stimuli and work towards specific goals.
