Chronic Pain

Pain is the body’s natural response to injury or illness, warning you that something is incorrect. With a restored body, usually, the pain disappears. But in many people, the pain continues long after the cause is removed. When the pain persists for more than three to six months, it is called chronic pain. Persistent pain in addition to physical health, it also affects your emotional health.
Chronic pain changes the behaviour of neurons and increases their sensitivity to pain messages. Neurons are brain or spinal cord nerve cells that transmit and process sensory inputs. For example, According to the statistics of the Arthritis Foundation, 20% of people with knee arthritis undergo knee joint replacement they have taken. Instead of a natural joint, they have a metal joint that has no feeling and cannot be painful, again from the pain they suffer chronically.
About 25% of people with persistent pain suffer from a more complicated condition called chronic pain syndrome (CPS: chronic pain syndrome. In addition to pain, this syndrome occurs with symptoms such as depression and anxiety and interferes with people’s daily life.
Treating persistent pain syndrome is difficult, but not impossible. A combination of treatments such as consultation with a pain specialist or Physical medicine, psychologist, physiotherapy and relaxation methods such as yoga help to eliminate pain and other associated symptoms.
