Healthcare professionals are finally beginning to recognize the bio-psycho-social dimensions of chronic pain. With chronic pain come not just physical symptoms of discomfort or agony, but also a chain-reaction of life-altering problems stemming from that one root cause, including any or all of the following: disability, unemployment, financial crisis, isolation, depression, eating disorder, alcohol or drug abuse, chronic fatigue, sexual dysfunction, personality change, dependency, and abandonment.
