Can Physical Medicine Cure Chronic Pain?

From time to time, we all deal with pain. Whether it’s an occasional headache, nagging low back pain, or some other unpleasant sensation indicating something amiss in the body, pain is a normal part of the human condition. Chronic pain, however, is not something to ignore.

People suffering from chronic pain often find that coping with it can take over their lives. It can result from illness, injury, or even a reaction to medication, but it’s important to determine the cause of the problem and treat it effectively to help the patient maintain normalcy. Pain can interfere with work and other normal activities, and can lead to depression, irritability, and insomnia; these conditions, in turn, can worsen the pain. In attempting to manage pain, some people turn to surgical options, and others become dependent on medication. 

Fortunately, physical medicine can be extremely useful in alleviating chronic pain. A holistic, multi-disciplinary approach to pain management can often provide relief while allowing patients to continue the activities of their daily lives. Surgery, in contrast, can lead to a lengthy recovery time, interfering with normal life. By using alternative physical medicine treatments, many patients are able to overcome the source of their chronic pain and begin to live with a higher level of functionality. Some of the physical medicine disciplines that can assist with chronic pain include:

If you’re suffering from pain that has begun to interfere with your daily activities, you don’t have to suffer needlessly.
