What is Chronic Pain and How Does it Affect Us?
For those that may not now, chronic pain is something entirely different from ordinary pain. That’s because regular pain disappears after the affection has been healed. However, chronic pain may last longer than the recovery and we are talking about at least three months of suffering.
