What is chronic pain?
Once a person has been in pain for over six months their pain level is termed as chronic. Chronic pain can be mild or excruciating, episodic or continuous, merely inconvenient or it can be completely incapacitating. Pain signals can remain in the nervous system for months and sometimes even years as a person’s body becomes utterly used to constantly being in pain, the pain receptors fail to stop.
How can chronic pain affect a person?
Having chronic pain often means that a person becomes completely unrecognisable from the personal they once were. Their outlook on life can completely change. Someone who once had a can do attitude can now be fearful of attempting many tasks for fear of further pain or a setback in their pain management program. Being fearful of how certain tasks can affect their pain levels can in time make a person’s world diminished. Hobbies and social activities become too painful or difficult to attend or navigate whilst there.
What causes chronic pain?
Chronic pain often originates with an initial trauma or injury. Other common sources of chronic pain stem from whiplash, headaches, joint pain, pain from injury, and pain from backaches. Other types of chronic pain include tendinitis, sinus pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and pain affecting specific parts of the body, such as the shoulders, pelvis, and neck.
Often chronic pain is caused by an impact such as a jolt or force either during a slip trip or fall or sustained when involved in a road traffic accident. But equally working conditions can cause muscle and or nerve pain which can develop into a chronic condition.
What’s the best way to minimise chronic pain and make non fault accident claims in Livingston?
The best way to limit chronic pain is to keep anxiety, stress, depression, anger and fatigue to an absolute minimum as these emotions can interact in complex ways with chronic pain and may decrease the body’s production of natural painkillers.
These negative feelings can increase the level of substances that amplify sensations of pain, so it is vitally important that when making non fault accident claims in Livingston a person with chronic pain selects a service such as Accident Advice Helpline who are reliable, trustworthy and accountable and who will handle the injury claim on a ‘no win’, no fee’ basis to keep stress levels to a minimum.
