Chronic/Acute Pain Therapies

Chronic Pain

Everyone experiences some kind of back pain, joint pain, neck pain or nerve pain at some time in their lives. A study done by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention revealed that 1/10 adult Americans had experienced pain that lasted for around a year or more. This continuous or severe pain can be quite disabling, causing the afflicted individual to feel angry and frustrated. Very often, it also leads to isolation as the person may no longer be able to take part in social activities.

Chronic pain can occur on account of any of the reasons listed below or even a combination of factors:

  • Motor vehicle or work-related accident
  • Debilitating illness like cancer or diabetic neuropathy
  • Sports injury
  • Post-surgery
  • Nerve inflammation or damage
  • Certain conditions like fibromyalgia, sciatica and arthritis

Whatever the cause, pain can lead to dependency/loss of autonomy, anxiety, depression and a feeling of hopelessness as you may not be able to perform daily activities without assistance.

Chronic Pain Conditions

Suffering from chronic pain conditions? Interventional pain management offers relief for back, joint, nerve, and neck pain.

Chronic pain conditions afflict many Americans. In many cases, the acute discomfort restricts movement preventing individuals from performing daily functions and taking part in social activities. The lack of interaction with others can also lead to stress and a general feeling of despair.

Medication, topical applications, physical therapy and meditation are some commonly prescribed pain relief treatments; however, they don’t always deliver the desired results. Individuals suffering from severe pain are often at high-risk of becoming either immune or addicted to pain medication. Continuous pain and soreness can also limit the duration and type of physical therapy you can tolerate.
