More than 76 million Americans over the age of 20 years old say they’ve had pain in the last 24 hours. So how long should you experience an aching neck or back, joint pain, or pain resulting from a surgery or injury? Pain is considered chronic if it occurs for longer than 3 months.

If you are under the care of your primary doctor and are still experiencing pain, it is time to seek help from a pain specialist. Especially when the pain is affecting your daily life and beyond your control. Sometimes the chronic pain may develop as acute pain in the form of an injury or serious illness that continues much longer than it should.

Common Types of Chronic Pain Include:

  • Arthritis
  • Headache & Migraine
  • Back and Neck Pain
  • Shingles
  • Nerve
  • Muscle
