Chronic pain is defined as pain that persists for longer than 3 months, and is the leading cause of disability in the world.

Chronic pain is a complex condition and can make it hard to work, properly care for yourself, or do the things you enjoy. Chronic pain can lead to depression, affect your mood and sleep and is also associated with a lower life expectancy.

When it comes to chronic pain, there’s no one solution that suits all. Many factors come into play depending on personal circumstances.
