When to Seek Treatment for Pain

According to the CDC, approximately 19.6 million Americans suffer from chronic pain that has limited their daily activities on most days or every day during the past six months. It is time to get help if:

  • It limits your ability to perform daily tasks.
  • It is ongoing or recurrent.
  • It lasts beyond the usual course of an acute illness or injury or more than 3 to 6 months.
  • It often negatively impacts an individual’s well-being.

Chronic pain varies in intensity and frequency. Some experience chronic pain constantly while others only feel it in episodes.

In addition to physical effects, chronic pain can have psychological effects, such as fatigue, mood changes, stress, anxiety, depression, irritability or restless nights of sleep.
