For some, the journey begins in childhood (Step #1). For others, it begins at the onset of symptoms (Step #6). Both paths are equally valid and real.

Did anything you see here surprise you? Here are a few things to keep in mind as you allow this information to settle:

  • This is not a comprehensive list of all the factors that contribute to chronic pain. Anything that’s happened in your brain, body, or life could play a role.
  • You may find that ALL of these factors are relevant to you, or that only a few of them are. Either way, your pain is very real and your experience is valid.
  • Everything depicted in this infographic is a natural, human response. If any of these factors influence your pain, it does not mean that you have done anything wrong.
  • The development of chronic pain is not your fault AND there are things you can do to break the cycle. Both of these things can be true.
