Pain is never a fun experience. Even the pain of exercise can be so unpleasant that getting out of a chair or climbing stairs makes one wonder if they should have done those last few squats. However, chronic pain is no laughing matter. Chronic pain robs you of your life. Chronic pain has been shown to increase the risk for depression, obesity, suicide and 10 years of chronic pain can shrink your brain matter by as much as a square centimeter!
Chronic pain usually starts with injury. Injury to tissues leads to inflammation and all the signs of injury like redness, heat, swelling, pain and loss of function are apparent, but they fade with time. Unfortunately, the injury remains, leading to fibrosis and scar tissue formation. This scar tissue is much more pain sensitive, harder to stretch, easier to re-injure and is loaded with pain nerve endings.
Chronic pain also leaves serious damage to the long tracts of nerves that travel from the injured area to the sensory and sometimes motor areas of the brain, in turn leading to improper symmetry of muscles, poor posture, gait problems and limping, and eventually disability.
Chronic pain decreases motivation and interferes with sleep, leading to the sufferer to be less likely to exercise, have sex, be happy and work harder. The chronic pain sufferer that turns to food for comfort is really in trouble because as the pounds increase, the pain will worsen, the illnesses will compound and then that chronic low back or knee pain has blossomed into diabetes, heart disease and even cancer!
