Chronic Pain Treatment at Lake Worth Chiropractic & Wellness
Living with a chronic pain condition can feel like being trapped in your own personal torture chamber -- the chamber in question being your own body. Even when it isn't particularly intense (as it so often is), pain that never lets up or constantly recurs can place severe constraints on your quality of life and your ability to provide for your loved ones. But drugs can only offer temporarily relief while possibly causing their own problems, while major surgery should always be a last resort. Instead, turn to Lake Worth Chiropractic & Wellness for safe, life-restoring pain management solutions.
When Pain Becomes Chronic
Pain may be either acute or chronic. You experience acute pain whenever you strain a muscle, break a bone, develop an acute infection, or come down with some other immediate, painful issue. Acute pain may last as long as the underlying injury or illness is healing, which might take days, weeks or even a few months -- but once that underlying problem fixes itself, the pain fades for good. By contrast, chronic pain is considered any kind of pain that lingers for more than 6 months, either as a constant presence or in recurring bouts. Unlike acute pain, the cause of your chronic pain may be a total mystery to you, unconnected to any obvious physical problem, which means you may be totally confused as to what to treat. It may even be referred to one area of the body from another point altogether, confounding your confusion. Common chronic pain problems include:
- Headaches and migraines
- Plantar fasciitis
- Tennis or golf elbow
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Neck pain
- Muscle knots (such as those experienced in fibromyalgia)
Your chronic pain may stem from joint alignment problems, degenerative joint or spinal conditions, postural abnormalities that strain your muscles, ergonomic issues at work, scar tissue interfering with motion, or nerves pinched by surrounding structures such as bulging/herniated discs.
Controlling Your Pain Without Drugs or Surgery
Painkillers may make you feel better briefly, but the cost of your alertness and without addressing the underlying issues. Surgery adds a new injury to recover from and may permanently alter your physical function. Our Lake Worth chiropractor can help you manage your pain safely and non-invasively by treating its biomechanical causes. We can provide:
- Chiropractic adjustments to un-pinch pinched nerves and reduce joint pain
- Massage to release muscle knots, inflammation and trapped tissues
- Physical therapy to improve your pain-free physical support and range of motion
Our methods don't just make you feel better; they can also make your body work better. Best of all, these treatment modalities are safe enough that you can use them as often as necessary for consistent pain management.
