Pain is a tricky thing to treat. Ask any doctor. If it was as simple as taking a pill or waiting until you recover and your cells repair, there would be no chronic pain: there would be no aches and pains. Aging would be a breeze!
The truth is pain and pain pathways in the body are felt and experienced differently depending on the person and their background. Your physical body is a manifestation of EVERYTHING you have ever experienced in your life!
Physical traumas are only PART of the story. Emotional traumas create the same pain pathways in the nervous system that physical traumas do.
