What Is Chronic Pain? 

Chronic pain can be categorized as any type of musculoskeletal pain or symptom that has been present for an extended period of time, usually for 6 months or longer. There are many types of chronic pain. Some of the most common types of chronic pain include the following. 

Back Pain

Studies have shown that upwards of 80% of Americans suffer from chronic back pain at some point during their life. This pain is typically felt in the lower back. It can be the result of medical issues such as arthritis or osteoporosis. It can even be the result of normal wear and tear. 


There are many different kinds of headaches. Those who suffer from chronic headaches may experience tension headaches, eye strain headaches, cluster headaches, etc. 

Joint Pain

Chronic joint pain can be the result of many issues, including but not limited to Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid arthritis, repetitive motion injuries, and more. 

Nerve Pain 

One in every ten Americans is affected by chronic nerve pain. Chronic nerve pain is commonly related to issues such as sciatica, diabetic neuropathy, carpal tunnel syndrome, and more.
