Pain is the most common reason people seek professional help and most commonly this is for back pain, neck pain and headaches.
Acute pain is a normal sensation triggered in the nervous system to alert you to injury and the need to take care of yourself. Chronic pain is different. Pain signals keep firing for weeks, months, even years. There may have been an initial mishap, a sprained back or serious infection, but some people suffer chronic pain in the absence of any past injury or evidence of body damage. Common ongoing pain syndromes include headache, low back pain, cancer pain, arthritis pain, neurogenic pain (pain resulting from damage to the peripheral nerves or to the central nervous system itself) or psychogenic pain (pain not due to past disease or injury or any visible sign of damage inside or outside the nervous system).
Pain is unique to each individual, affecting and presenting itself differently even among those with the same diagnosis. In that respect, our treatment of those suffering from pain is also unique - tailored to meet the needs of each individual person. Therapies are not only focused on reducing or eliminating feelings of pain, but also treating its root cause so the pain does not reoccur. Treatment options may include a combination of the following:
Although analgesics have their place in acute situations, chronic pain from musculoskeletal sources best responds to the drugless approach. Probably the most important factor in managing chronic pain is understanding the difference between “hurt and harm”. The more you know about your pain, the more in control you are.
