Injuries That Lead to Chronic Pain

Experiencing occasional aches and pains is normal, but long-term pain that lasts for months and even years is not only a hindrance to daily life, but a cause for concern. 

When we think about pain, acute pain is typically what comes to mind. Often the result of an injury, illness, trauma or even a medical procedure, acute pain can be severe in the moment, but only lasts a short amount of time. While acute pain is more short-term and often rather specific, chronic pain is long lasting and can be much harder to address. The injured area continues to send pain signals to your brain, resulting in extreme discomfort, a reduced sense of flexibility, limited mobility and decreased strength.

According to Boston University, one out of every 5 people (1.5 billion people worldwide) experience chronic, long-lasting pain. 

Chronic Pain Explained  

Chronic pain typically lasts 12 weeks or more and can be the result of an injury or illness. Many experience chronic pain uniquely, from a steady aching sensation to a feeling of pain that comes and goes without rhyme or reason. Aches can even be paired with a burning sensation. 

People who suffer from chronic pain may commonly experience sleep disturbance, fatigue and depression. Many experience extreme difficulty falling asleep, causing additional pain. 

What Types of Injuries Lead to Chronic Pain? 

Many injuries that lead to chronic pain happen when performing simple activities such as lifting heavy items, playing sports or exercising. More extreme events include falling, car accidents and surgery. 


Common injuries that may lead to chronic pain include: 

  • Back sprains 
  • Pulled muscles 
  • Nerve damage 
  • Whiplash 
  • Joint dislocation 


In addition to injuries, there are certain conditions that can also lead to chronic pain:

  • Endometriosis
  • Fibromyalgia 
  • Migraines 
  • Osteoporosis
  • Arthritis
