Chronic Pain: not just a case of "It’s all in your head"

We have in depth knowledge of psychological conditions such as chronic pain and work with an extensive range of specialists in this area.

Accidents can cause serious physical harm, but they can also be very traumatic experiences resulting in the development of long term psychological issues.

The specialist serious injury lawyers at Freeclaim Solicitors understand that psychological damage can be as debilitating as any physical damage.

The saying ‘it’s all in the head’ no longer applies to those who are suffering from psychological damages as courts now recognise that disorders such as Chronic Pain, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) are compensatable conditions.

So what is Chronic Pain?
A somewhat controversial psychological condition labelled as a Pain Disorder Associated with Psychological Factors (with or without a Medical Condition), chronic pain can be influenced by psychological factors such as stress and anxiety.

In many cases chronic pain can be traced to an injury that has since healed - this may include injuries sustained from a serious infection, surgical incisions or nerve damage. For example, you may have been involved in an accident where you have suffered serious physical injury. You may be in serious on-going pain well after your injury has healed, yet your GP may not find any evidence of lasting damage even though the pain you feel would suggest otherwise. In this case this may be chronic pain.

Alternatively, negative emotions like sadness and anxiety can cause chronic pain. You may have experienced significant stress whilst in work resulting in severe headaches. Although these headaches may subside, the pain may reappear if you associate stress or negative feelings with your job, leading to anxiety, depression and then of course on-going chronic pain.

No longer associated with hypochondriacs, chronic pain is a serious and debilitating disorder that can have severe emotional and physical ramifications.
