Over 70 million Americans suffer from chronic pain. Chronic pain is distinct from acute pain in that the pain persists for longer than several months. It is biologically different. Pain involves irritation and inflammation of a nerve cell and tissue including muscle, tendon, bone and cartilage. Chronic irritation of nerves causes changes in the nerve itself, spinal cord, brain stem, and brain. Pain cannot occur unless the brain is stimulated and the information is processed.
