With an acute injury or illness, you may need some treatment, but you know you’ll be feeling better and back to normal functioning in a short amount of time.
A chronic condition or disease is different. It often never goes away. A chronic condition can disrupt your life both physically and mentally. Certain symptoms can make you feel isolated, causing you to withdraw from your usual activities and social groups.
But that doesn’t have to be the case. There are many treatment options available that can help those living with chronic conditions, letting you get back to the business of living a full life.
