Sadly, there are many people currently suffer from chronic pain, with many adults also suffering from high-impact chronic pain. Whether you're living with chronic back pain, headaches, knee pain, or anything in between, chronic pain can be debilitating. It can be difficult to deal with the symptoms of chronic pain if they continue to reoccur and no treatment is done to address the underlying issue.
Fortunately, there is hope available for people struggling with chronic pain. Through chiropractic care, people can get the help they need to resolve their chronic pain through non-invasive treatments. While other chronic pain treatment might only focus on masking the symptoms of chronic pain, the most effective treatments will treat the underlying cause. At EPIC Life Chiropractic & Wellness serving Hazelwood, MO, and Florissant, MO, our goal is to help our patients live a life free of pain and help our patients reach their wellness goals.
Causes of Chronic Pain
Causes of chronic pain will vary depending on the type of chronic pain someone is experiencing. Chronic pain can be caused by several issues, including:
- Issues with the alignment of the spine, which may cause chronic pain of the lower back, poor posture, muscle aches, and headaches just to name a few
- Prior injuries that were never treated, such as whiplash or sports injuries, can continue to cause pain at the sight of injury
- Arthritis or osteoarthritis, which can cause pain in the joints
- Lower back pain that can be caused by issues such as a pinched sciatic nerve, herniated discs or bulging discs, or spinal stenosis
What Is the Best Chronic Pain Treatment?
Treatment will vary based on the underlying cause of your pain. For instance, if you suffer from headaches, our chiropractor may prescribe treatment such as manual and spinal adjustments to realign your sprain and help improve your posture and pain. Other treatments for chronic pain may include cold laser therapy to help repair damaged tissues and massage therapy to help alleviate inflammation and help boost circulation in injured muscles.
These are some of the many treatments available to help alleviate chronic pain, and all can be done with the help of our trained chiropractor.
