A temporary case of acute pain is troublesome and debilitating enough in its own right — but what do you do about a pain that never seems to leave you alone? It’s a question facing some 100 million Americans who suffer from chronic pain conditions and syndromes. If you’re worried about subjecting yourself to heavy medications or even corrective surgery to ease your misery, you should know about the safe, natural chronic pain management options we can provide here at Back to Mind in Tamarac and Hollywood FL.
The strict definition of chronic pain is pain that continues to bother you for more than 6 months after the initial onset of symptoms. Most cases of acute pain don’t go on this long because they tend to resolve themselves as the underlying infection, injury, or another pain-causing challenge heals. Some of these issues, however, may leave behind internal scarring, nerve impingement, or a misaligned joint that produces recurring or constant pain.
Some types of chronic pain have no known cause. Others are associated with chronic pain syndromes such as fibromyalgia. Degenerative conditions such as herniated discs, spondylolisthesis, arthritis, and spinal stenosis can cause chronic neck or back pain. Chronic tension headaches typically stem from cervical alignment problems that strain the tissues of the neck and the base of the skull.
Even there is no known way to resolve your pain once and for all, you can still improve your quality of life dramatically through chronic pain management. Managing your chronic pain doesn’t have to involve the use of risky, mind-addling painkillers, nor does it necessarily mean undergoing serious surgical procedures to fuse vertebrae or remove cartilage. Instead, you can get the chronic pain treatment you need entirely through conservative care, thanks to our chiropractor at Back to Mind, Dr. Abramson. Our clinic can diagnose the underlying causes of your pain and prescribe a customized chronic pain management plan, including such techniques as:
