It is a common belief that our tissue heals after an injury, and pain usually goes away. Yet, many Australians experience pain after the healing process is complete. When pain persists beyond three months, this is defined as “Chronic Pain.”

Chronic Pain Explained: 

A common explanation is that chronic pain occurs due to the changes in our nervous system; the pain receptors become more sensitised and keep the nerves firing, signalling pain to the brain.

Factors:  

Factors contributing to chronic pain include stress, anxiety; sleep; diet; and psychological trauma. When dealing with chronic pain, taking a holistic approach to care is essential. How can we achieve this? Practising mindfulness, speaking to a psychologist or developing a regular sleep routine and a healthy diet can promote our physical and mental health.

Joanne’s message:  

“No matter how you choose to approach chronic pain, it is always important to remember that any movement is better than no movement at all.”
