Invisible Disabilities: Not all injury, illness, chronic pain, and disabilities are visible! You may have psychological or unseen physical scars that start after the initial injury or illness and last long after medical treatment and or any litigation is over. Problems like this can affect many workers relationships with the people they interact with and love, and will determine how well they readjust to life. These problems can also lead to other complications or can even be fatal. Unfortunately, many workers are not aware that they have these problems, and others fail to seek treatment because they fear being labeled as weak or as losing their status in life.

Pain syndromes are another disability that is not visible to the naked eye, but can be just as damaging as any other. These kinds of disabilities are extremely concerning because not only are they difficult to diagnose, they are just as difficult to treat because of the vast scale of the body they cover. This can also lead to the patient getting frustrated and loosing his/her self esteem and believing that no one can help. This is false? You must stay focused, be resilient, and most of all be patient.
