Health Tip: Deal With Chronic Pain

Chronic pain, if it isn’t controlled, can perpetuate itself and contribute to additional physical and mental problems.

The Ohio State University Medical Center explains:

  • A “terrible triad” of sleeplessness and sadness stemming from chronic pain can trigger additional problems, such as dependence on drugs, multiple surgeries and pursuing non-standard treatments of questionable safety.
  • Depression, anxiety and irritability may lead to a preoccupation with pain.
  • Pain can interfere with daily life and everyday activities.
