Chronic pain management is a very complex process that needs to be continuously modified throughout a patient’s treatment regimen. Physical therapists at Classic Rehabilitation, Inc. tailor their management programs per patient by integrating innumerable forms of physical modalities. Over the last three decades research has shown that acute pain is associated with changes in tissues after an injury. On the hand, chronic pain is mostly due to changes in the nervous system that increases its sensitivity to the point any form of stimulation is painful.
In the general population, about 40 million Americans live with chronic pain according to the National Institute of Health. These individuals are unable to find any relief from conventional methods such as over the counter pain medication and surgery. Pulling our resources together we provide our patients with the ability to regain as much of their normal daily activities as they potentially can. Of these millions of cases, the most common are:
- Low back pain
- Neck pain
- Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS)
- Nerve damage
- Multiple sclerosis
- Gastrointestinal illness.
Moreover, each of these disorders is diagnosed by pain lasting for more than six months or beyond expected healing time according to a physician. Patients experience pain attacks at each and every vulnerable target in their body including muscles, bones and especially joints.
Miscellaneous causes of chronic pain may arise from the use of a bad mattress or an undiagnosed stomach ulcer. The beginning may be an injury or illness and developing into severe psychological problems that do not heal. Nerve fiber injuries related to chronic disorders such as diabetes can also result in chronic pain. Also a pinched nerve may lead to peripheral neuropathy, carpal tunnel syndrome, and tennis elbow, so at times a proper diagnosis may save a patient a lot of emotional, financial and physical trauma.
Classic Rehabilitation, Inc. encourages patients to recognize if they are at risk to avoid any potential complications. Being a female and a person’s age play major roles in developing chronic pain. Living in these circumstances affects every aspect of a patient’s life, and a comprehensive management program is imperative in allowing the patient’s mind and body to find the root cause and eliminating it.
