Understanding your pain...
When pain occurs it is showing you that somewhere in your body a problem has surfaced. People shrug pain off every day thinking it will work its way out, but that may not be the case. You might need to seek out medical help to correct the problem and prevent it from worsening. We see all types of pain with our patients ranging from neck pain to upper back pain to low back pain and even arm and leg pain. Dealing with pain can lead to longer term health problems and issues if not addressed.
There are two types of pain:
1. Acute Pain- This pain is new to the body and can be caused by a sprain, cut, broken bone, etc and can be the result of injury or accident. The pain can be mild to severe and will usually dissipate with effective treatment.
2. Chronic Pain- This pain is different and may be caused by injuries that were never treated, job duties, stress, poor posture, lifestyle choices, lack of diet and exercise that may be on going for up to 6 months. Many look to painkillers to alienate the symptoms, this seems like the right thing to do, after all no one wants to live in the discomfort of pain. Quite often painkillers will mask the cause of the problem by reducing the amount of pain. Doesn’t it make more sense to find the true cause of the pain and treat it directly?
