Get Effective Chronic Pain Treatment in Bremerton
We can't prevent pain. When you pull a muscle, dislocate your shoulder, or twist your ankle, pain is the way your body communicates when something is wrong. Most pain usually lasts for a few days or weeks.
But chronic pain is more excruciating – it lasts for more than 12 weeks and is quite common than you think. An estimated 20.4% of adults in America experience chronic pain every year. Besides affecting your day-to-day life, chronic pain can be detrimental to your mental health. Therefore, it's crucial to make chronic pain treatment in Bremerton a priority.
What Causes Chronic Pain?
Identifying the cause of your chronic pain may be a little bit difficult. However, a chiropractor has the expertise to assess and diagnose musculoskeletal disorders to pinpoint where your pain is coming from. When suffering from chronic pain, it means that the brain is not efficiently communicating with the rest of your body systems through the nerves.
Some of the most common chronic pains include back pain, nerve pain, headaches, and joint pains.
In most cases, this pain is caused by underlying conditions such as osteoarthritis (joint inflammation and pain), spinal stenosis (narrowing of the spine), whiplash injuries, and problems with the musculature. Nutritional and environmental triggers may cause some pains like headaches.
How Can Chiropractic Care Help with Chronic Pain?
Once the diagnosis is made, your chiropractor will suggest a personalized treatment plan or recommend an appropriate referral. Chiropractic care for chronic pain involves the manipulation and mobilization of the spine to strengthen your natural frame.
