Chronic pain is often defined as pain lasting for more than 12 weeks. The amount of individuals with a chronic pain diagnosis has skyrocketed over recent years and getting help with this often complex condition can help people better manage not only their physical pain, but also much of the emotional and psychological pain that comes with it. Pain is a very personal and subjective experience and finding a professional who can tailor a treatment plan that best manages symptoms is imperative for reducing pain and improving function.
