When an injury happens the best solution is to treat it right away. There are so many injuries that occur that are not always obvious. Some common injuries that cause chronic pain are nerve damage, back injuries, and even injuries from the past. This is why seeing a chiropractor is better than trying to treat an injury yourself. Injuries that are left untreated often lead to chronic pain in the body. It usually takes about 3 to 6 months for pain to be considered chronic.
Effects of Chronic Pain
Chronic pain can last for a long-time and bring other complications with it. Environmental and psychological effects play a key role for chronic pain. Sleep problems are associated with chronic pain. A good night’s rest is needed for you to be rejuvenated and for you to function at your best. Chronic pain can make it very difficult for you to fall asleep. You probably know how a typical work day can go when you have not gotten the proper amount of sleep. Most times, you are not as effective as you could be on the job. Also, your mental health is at risk as well as other daily activities that you perform. Pain that is chronic does not have to be tolerated when there are ways for it to be eliminated.
Where is the Pain Coming From?
While there is no way to measure the intensity of the pain, the cause of the pain can be found with medical technology. Did you know that the nervous system is the main area in your body that indicates where the pain started? There are also pain sensors that work by informing your brain that your body is in pain. Each pain sensor is sending a signal that your body has been hurt. Pain is always informing you that something is not right in your body. Symptoms begin to show in your body such as soreness, burning, stiffness, or even an ache. It is important to pay attention to these types of symptoms so that you can describe them to your chiropractor. Chiropractic therapies work for acute and chronic pain. Your Chiropractor will provide fast and effective pain relief. According to studies (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19028250) use of rehabilitation in conjunction with chiropractic manipulation speeds and improves outcomes and minimizes injury recurrence.
