Chronic pain is different from acute pain. When pain becomes chronic, areas of the brain associated with learning, memory, and emotions become more activated.
This is why when pain persists after an injury has healed, it is likely neuroplastic, meaning the pain is now due to learned neural pathways in the brain and your emotional state.
However, once you identify your pain is neuroplastic pain, there is hope as effective psychotherapy exists including Pain Reprocessing Therapy and Emotional Awareness and Expression Therapy.
