Pain that lasts for longer than three months is called chronic pain. The pain can be a result of illness, an injury or accident or have no apparent trigger. It may vary in intensity and be in any part of your body.
Chronic pain does not usually respond to treatment. Coping with continuing pain can leave you stressed, depressed and tired.
Our pain management specialists can help you find ways to cope with pain and get on with living again.
