Preventing Chronic Pain Flare-Ups

An estimated 1.5 million Canadians between the ages of 12 and 44, and more than 76 million Americans over the age of 20, say they experience chronic pain.

There are three primary types of chronic pain that one can experience: Neuropathic pain, nociceptive pain, and visceral pain. For further definition on these types of chronic pain, click here.
