COVID-19 UPDATE  

Chronic Pain following accidents can be a lifelong disability.

Posted by: Robert Deutschmann, Personal Injury Lawyer

Chronic pain is common throughout the world and is thought to impact about 20% of people. New research in Australia into understanding how the brain reacts to chronic pain should lead to improved treatments for it. There is currently little understanding of the mechanisms of chronic pain, and the ability of the brain to change functionally and structurally in response to it.

Chronic pain can result in poor sleep, irritability, problems with memory and concentration and in many cases results in depression and anxiety disorders. Those suffering from chronic pain often miss work, or are completely unable to work costing millions of dollars a year in productivity and insurance settlements.

The researchers in Australia hope that the results of their latest research will provide insight into the cause of chronic pain and how the brain changes because of it. The findings will be presented later this month in France.
