The causes of chronic pain are not always clear, but several factors have been identified as potential culprits. These factors can include physical injury or trauma, medical conditions, such as arthritis or fibromyalgia, nerve damage, and psychological factors, such as stress or anxiety.

Conditions & Injuries Known to Cause Chronic Pain

Ottawa Disability Lawyers has the know-how and skills to handle and resolve long term disability disputes based on chronic pain, including


Fibromyalgia is a medical condition characterized by widespread pain, fatigue, and tenderness throughout the body. It is a chronic disorder that affects the musculoskeletal system, and its exact cause is unknown. Fibromyalgia may also be accompanied by sleep disturbances, headaches, and irritable bowel syndrome, among other symptoms. Although there is no cure for fibromyalgia, treatments such as medications, exercise, and therapy can help alleviate the symptoms.

Chronic Pain Syndrome

Chronic Pain Syndrome (CPS) is a condition that refers to the experience of ongoing, persistent pain that lasts for at least 3-6 months or longer. The pain can be located in one or multiple areas of the body and can range from mild to severe.

Unlike acute pain, which is typically the result of an injury or illness, CPS is a condition in and of itself. The cause of CPS is not always easily identifiable and may be related to underlying medical conditions or injuries. However, in some cases, there may be no clear cause of the pain.

CPS can have a significant impact on an individual’s quality of life, affecting their ability to work, participate in daily activities, and maintain social relationships.

Motor Vehicle Accidents and Other Personal Injuries

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Whiplash and other injuries resulting from car crashes can cause chronic neck, shoulder, and back pain. These injuries often result from the rapid back-and-forth motion of the head during the impact. Whiplash can cause muscle and ligament strain, nerve damage, and spinal cord injuries that result in chronic pain.


A slip-and-fall accident can cause injuries to the head, neck, and back, which may lead to chronic pain. Injuries can include fractures, dislocations, and traumatic brain injuries. These injuries can cause chronic pain that may require long-term management through a combination of surgery, physical therapy and/or medication.

Workplace Injuries

Repetitive stress injuries or accidents in the workplace can lead to chronic pain in various parts of the body. Repetitive motion, heavy lifting, and awkward postures can cause chronic pain in the neck, shoulders, back, and joints. 

Repetitive stress injuries can affect anyone, regardless of age or physical ability. They can cause chronic pain, which, in turn, causes emotional distress and affects a person’s mental health, particularly if they impact their ability to work or perform daily activities.


Endometriosis is another medical condition that can cause chronic pain. Endometriosis is a condition in which the tissue that lines the uterus grows outside of the uterus, causing pain and inflammation. This can lead to chronic pelvic pain, pain during intercourse, and other symptoms.

Endometriosis-related pain can range from mild to severe and can be debilitating, affecting an individual’s ability to work, attend school, or perform everyday tasks.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs) are chronic conditions that cause inflammation in the digestive tract, leading to symptoms such as abdominal pain, diarrhea, and weight loss. Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are two common types of IBD, both of which can result in chronic abdominal pain as a symptom.
