Chronic musculoskeletal pains have been shown to affect lifestyle as well as the health of the individuals. Recent studies have shown that individuals with chronic pains may develop higher risk of:
- Cardiovascular diseases such as high blood pressure and heart diseases.
- Weight Gain
- Poor sleep
The link between chronic pain and chronic diseases is still unknown at this stage. However, several mechanisms proposed include:
- Chronic inflammation from chronic pain increases the risk of developing cardiovascular issues and diabetes.
- Lack of physical activities due to chronic pain increases the risk of developing poor health thsu chronic diseases.
- Long-term usage of painkillers to reduce chronic pain can lead to development of cardiovascular issues.
As we can see, chronic pain such as back pain, neck pain and osteoarthritis are not as simple as they seem. Prevention and early management of the pain can reduce the development of lifestyle diseases.
