What is Chronic Pain?
Millions of people in America suffer from chronic pain. It can be mild or excruciating, episodic or continuous, merely inconvenient or totally incapacitating. The most common sources of pain stem from headaches, joint pain, pain from injury, and backaches. Other kinds of chronic pain include tendonitis, sinus pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and pain affecting specific parts of the body, such as the shoulders, pelvis, and neck. Generalized muscle or nerve pain can also develop into a chronic condition.
Chronic Pain Symptoms
- Shooting, burning, aching, or electrical and feeling of discomfort, soreness, tightness, or stiffness.
- With chronic pain, signals of pain remain active in the nervous system for months or even years. This can take both a physical and emotional toll on a person. The emotional toll of chronic pain also can make pain worse.
- anxiety, stress, depression, anger, and fatigue interact in complex ways with chronic pain and may decrease the body's production of natural painkillers; moreover, such negative feelings may increase the level of substances that amplify sensations of pain, causing a vicious cycle of pain for the person. Even the body's most basic defenses may be compromised: There is considerable evidence that unrelenting pain can suppress the immune system.
Chronic Pain Treatments
Chronic pain is ongoing pain that persists beyond an expected time frame, and it doesn't respond to the typical pain management techniques. However, chiropractors can treat chronic pain. Our Chiropractos use a variety of non-surgical treatments, such as spinal manipulation, to address chronic pain symptoms, such as inflammation and muscle tension.
Make an appointment with our chiropractors to develop a treatment plan for your chronic pain. Once your pain is fully addressed, you should be able to gradually increase your quality of life.
