"How to Manage Chronic Pain: Tips for Finding Relief"

It is estimated that 20% of Americans suffer from chronic pain every year. Pain is considered to be chronic if it lasts longer than 3 months. Chronic pain is usually caused by an initial injury such as a back sprain or pulled muscles. It is believed that chronic pain develops after nerves become damaged. If you do not take care of the initial injury, the symptoms become chronic and even treating the underlying injury may not resolve the chronic pain. Therefore, it is important to get care for acute injury so that the pain does not become chronic. Factors that can increase your risk of developing chronic pain include older age, mild or major injury, previous surgery, being female, and being overweight/obese. The main goal of chronic pain treatment is to reduce pain and improve mobility. Chiropractic care can help with your chronic pain by reducing musculoskeletal joint pain, increase range of motion, and improve quality of life. #parkavenuechiropractic #acuteinjury #chronicpain #chiropractictreatment #mountairychiropractor #woodbinechiorpractor #newmarketchiropractor #damascuschiropractor #marylandchiropractor #getadjusted
