Chronic pain is any pain that lasts for longer than anticipated. It can come from any number of accidents and injuries, and has widespread and varying effects.
What is Chronic Pain Syndrome?
Doctors define chronic pain as any pain that occurs for longer than 3 – 6 months. While the initial injury has already healed, chronic pain is felt long after the recovery period.
Can A Car Accident Cause Chronic Pain?
Depending on the type of injuries you sustain during the car accident, your accident can absolutely cause chronic pain. This is particularly the case if your initial injuries go untreated.
Can I Have Delayed Pain After A Car Accident?
The short answer is yes. However, delayed pain is not the same thing as chronic pain. Due to many factors, including a rush of adrenaline, you may not feel pain immediately after a car accident. This can even cause you to overlook severe injuries. However, it is still important to seek medical attention because untreated injuries can lead to chronic pain later in life.
