Pain doesn’t always work in typically ways. Often, because of an underlying disorder, it can last for days, weeks or even months. That is called chronic pain” when pain lasts for three months or longer. Chronic pain is both physically and emotionally crippling. We recognize your needs and have experience in treating several patients suffering from chronic pain at Pace Physical Therapy in San Jose, CA.
How did my chronic pain develop?
Chronic pain derives from a neurophysiological basis in most cases. In a complex network, chronic injury, disease, anxiety, and feeling depressed are combined, which causes the neurological system to constantly be on high alert. In the form of back pain, joint pain, nerve pain, or headaches, chronic pain may occur. Most usually, it happens because of one of the following causes:
If it happens in a vehicle, in the workplace, or even in your own home, any accident can lead to chronic pain. Workplace accidents happen to approximately 2.9 out of every 100 workers, according to a 2016 statistic found by OSHA. In addition, a study published in a journal called Pain reported that in the weeks following their accident, 21 percent of individuals involved in motor vehicle collisions experienced persistent generalized pain. On its own, this pain does not go away, but finding the aid of a physical therapist from San Jose, CA will help relieve it.
There are very common overuse injuries, and they can occur in any part of the body that is used repetitively in your everyday life. For instance, the way you stand, walk, work, and exercise can all take a toll on your body. If you are not using appropriate strategies, it results in overuse accidents. This can lead to joint and muscle injury, causing chronic pain. For example, with incorrect techniques, when you do heavy lifting at work several times a day this can lead to chronic back pain. In order to prevent these complications, physical therapy will help you learn how to better move your body in your daily life.
There are several conditions, including arthritis, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, shingles, neuropathy due to diabetes, and more that can lead to chronic pain. Both of these can result in chronic pain, which can be alleviated with treatment with physical therapy.
Often, surgical operations are necessary. While they might be required to relieve some problems you face, the time of post-surgical recovery may be just as painful. Surgical reconstruction of a body region is necessary to fix a structural problem, but we also compensate for the discomfort we feel in our movements. If the movement is not reversed, weeks, months or even years of compensatory movement can cause additional pain following surgery. Physical therapy includes resources for post-surgical healing that can help speed up recovery time, alleviate pain, and minimize the risk of potential chronic pain.
What’s the difference between chronic and acute pain?
In a few hours, days or weeks, acute pain can be described as pain that goes away on its own. Acute pain will be considered an example of a mild ankle sprain, since the pain would subside in a few days soon.
A persistent suffering that lasts for 3-6 months or longer is chronic pain. There are many reasons why people can experience chronic pain, and getting medical attention is the most common cause. By restricting your mobility, creating a dependency on prescription medications, or even triggering anxiety and depression, this can significantly hinder your quality of life. With the assistance of Pace Physical Therapy, however this can all be avoided.
