Chronic Pain Syndrome

Pain is the body’s natural response to an injury or illness. Injury is a reaction that acts as a warning sign that something is wrong. However, pain usually subsides when your body heals. For many people, the pain doesn’t subside. If pain lasts for 3 to 6 months or more, it is known as chronic pain. Chronic pain syndrome is a vicious cycle created when that chronic pain leads to complications, increasing the original pain. At Austin Neurosurgeons, it is our goal to help each one of our patients feel and perform at their best. We offer treatments and support for those suffering from chronic pain syndrome to achieve relief and improved well-being.
