Treating chronic pain, what is it and what can I do?

chronic painWhat is chronic Pain? It is pain that has persisted for more than six months although in some definitions it is considered chronic if it is over three months. To confuse maters more you could have acute exacerbation’s of a chronic pain condition that seem short lived but the chronic condition is an underling-factor in the acute condition. what are some of the common cause of chronic pain? Chronic pain can be caused by problems or irritations of the nervous system, injuries or degeneration of the joints, muscle injuries.

erve problems can be one of the causes of chronic pain. Interference with the nerve occurs when the nerves is  pinched, choked, stretched or chaffed. This can cause pain, numbness, tingling and other abnormal sensations. These types of nerve problems are correctable by a Doctor of Chiropractic . A Chiropractor can reduce or eliminate the pain by re-aligning the spine. Alignment is achieved through the use of safe, gentle and very specific adjustment to the spine and extremities.   These adjustments take the pressure off the nerves, allowing them to calm down and feel better.

oint problems are another factor in chronic pain or chronic pain syndrome. Healthy joint motion  should be fluid, free and smooth against each other. This motion is like ice gliding on ice.  Dysfunctional joints move like rusty old hinges and needs a shot of WD-40 oil, or the chiropractic adjustment.  When this happens, it sets the stage for arthritis, degenerative joint disease and chronic pain. It must be remember that for joints movement is health. Chiropractors are experts in joint movement and how it affects both nerves and muscles as well as the organ systems nearby.

uscles are under constant stress. Muscle attracted to injured nerves or joints are beyond stressed. If a muscle is injured due to the structures around it or direct trauma this will cause pain. This will cause the muscle to go into spasm, or worse develop trigger points. Trigger points are extremely painful spasms that can cause referred pain to travel up into your head, into your arm or down your leg often referred to as sciatica or carpal tunnel.
