Symptoms and Causes of Chronic Pain

By Madhusudhan Tammisetti

Chronic pain may last anywhere from months to years. Anyone who suffers from chronic pain ought to take it seriously since it may result in severe consequences. The spinal cord, brain, or body limbs are the most common areas of chronic pain. Chronic pain is caused by a variety of factors and is not restricted to physical traumas.

Furthermore, chronic pain symptoms are subtle and may be misinterpreted for stiffness or soreness. Especially if a person engages in sports or the job demands a lot of physical activity.

Chronic pain symptoms may range from minor pains to severe agony. Chronic pain sufferers are often unable to do even the most basic activities as a result of these symptoms. Due to the pain, people may suffer from depression, which wreaks havoc on their bodies.

A chiropractor may use different methods such as massaging, physical therapy, and ice or heat therapy to treat chronic pain.


If a burn takes an unusually long time to heal, it may indicate chronic pain. Furthermore, if a burning feeling lasts longer than three months, it's thought to be a symptom of chronic pain. Feelings of severe itching, in addition to burning, may be signs of chronic pain.

Swelling or Infections

Infections may occur due to swelling caused by cuts or injuries. They may cause entire limbs to stop working correctly. It may cause excruciating pain for months.


This is the least apparent symptom since participants in sports often experience this feeling because of too much training. A lengthy duration of stiffness, in addition to soreness, may be a source of chronic pain.

Poor Posture

One of the reasons for chronic pain is poor posture. However, given the prevalence of sedentary lifestyles across the globe, this should come as no surprise. A sprain in the back caused by extended sitting or uncomfortable standing postures may cause chronic pain.


The strangest of all the reasons is this one. Perhaps you're taking excellent care of the body but still suffer from chronic pain. According to research conducted by Generation Scotland, genetics may be the source of chronic pain. The research showed that 18 percent of people, and their parents, have chronic pain after analyzing and evaluating 24,000 people.


Chiropractic treatment offers a more therapeutic approach to chronic pain, and chiropractors are available for further consultation. This treatment may give positive results for anybody suffering from minor chronic pain due to its application with other methods such as physical therapy.

Daily twice or thrice treatment of cold or heat therapy may also give relief from chronic pain. A gentle massage on the affected areas may help relieve pain. Giving complete rest to the body may also help in alleviating the pain.
