Christchurch Pain Management provides care for patients with acute, chronic and cancer pain problems. Chronic pain is pain that has existed for several months and can potentially continue for years. Chronic pain usually stems from either a medical condition or an injury that has previously healed. It can be limited to a specific region of the body or affect many regions at the same time. Chronic pain can also lead to hopelessness and depression in which a person’s productivity and relationships may be compromised.
