Did you know that Chronic Pain Could Permanently Damage Your Brain? In a study done at Northwestern University, researcher Dante Chialvo, lead author and associate research professor of physiology at the Feinberg School discovered that chronic pain could lead to permanent brain dysfunction.
“If you are a chronic pain patient, you have pain 24 hours a day, seven days a week, every minute of your life,” Chialvo said. “That permanent perception of pain in your brain makes these areas in your brain continuously active. This continuous dysfunction in the equilibrium of the brain can change the wiring forever and could hurt the brain.”
