Pain is produced by the brain and can be chronic or acute. Chronic pain, which affects one in five Australians, is less about physical damage and more about nervous system sensitivity.

Surgery may not be helpful, so a second opinion is advised. Taking a holistic approach can provide opportunities for managing and improving chronic pain.
