Chronic injuries can result in subsequent pain challenges and continue after the injury has healed, lasting months, even years. The challenge with chronic injuries is that nerve signals that were active during acute injury continue to send messages that the body is in pain. Although chronic pain is not entirely understood, it is often due to nerves that have become damaged. Research shows that chronic pain can come from a malfunction in the way the brain ‘maps’ sensory information.
