Chronic pain is pain that lasts longer than 6 weeks. The pain persists when there is no longer a direct relationship with the original injury, or there is long-term pain without cause. In chronic pain we speak of sensitization. Your brain then transmits a wrong signal to your body for a long time, causing you to experience pain. Pain that we often do not understand.
