What is Chronic Pain? - RWJUH New Brunswick

What is Chronic Pain?

And how best to manage it.

  • In its most benign form, pain warns us that something isn't quite right, that we should take medicine or see a doctor. At its worst, pain robs us of our productivity, our well-being, and, for many of us suffering from extended illness, our very lives.
  • Pain is a complex perception that differs enormously among individual patients, even those who appear to have identical injuries or illnesses.
  • Chronic pain persists over a longer period of time than acute pain and is resistant to most medical treatments. It can, and often does, cause severe problems for patients. It can be made much worse by environmental and psychological factors.

Join us to discuss how to manage chronic pain.
