Studies have shown that millions of Americans deal with chronic pain on a daily basis. If you’re one of those people, it’s likely you may not know the source of your pain, as many people don’t. While it may be difficult to trace the source of your pain, it can be made easier by visiting a medical professional, such as Bomberg Chiropractic. Using our years of experience and medical certifications, we can help you trace the source of your ailments, treat them, and create a plan that will strengthen your weakened areas so you can increase your quality of life.
What Kinds of Conditions Cause Chronic Pain?
As stated above, there are a variety of conditions that can cause chronic pain, including:
● Multiple Sclerosis
● Arthritis and Osteoarthritis
● Spinal Damage
● Lyme Disease
Your symptoms may be caused by any of the above conditions, or they may be caused by something completely unrelated. Only a medical diagnosis can answer that for you. In addition to chronic pain, you will likely experience deep aching in your muscles and joints, as well as potential trigger-point tension, depression, anxiety, isolation, and other problems. While you can solve some of symptoms with painkillers and other prescription drugs, you could be risking addiction. Our team can help you resolve your pain with alternative methods instead of medication.
Managing Your Pain Safely
Though you may not think about it, oftentimes, you have a strong mental reaction in addition to a strong physical reaction. If you are struggling with your mental state while dealing with chronic pain, we recommend you see a psychologist or attend psychotherapy. While you may not think either of these options is for you, they can help you in profound ways. Therapy and psychotherapy teach you how to deal with emotions and pain, as well as teach you coping mechanisms. Additionally, therapy helps you better understand yourself, your needs, what you value most in life, and more.
Stress and chronic pain are also linked. If you put yourself in a stressful environment that is not conducive to your mental state, it can further add to your struggles. If you are having difficulties dealing with the stress that comes with chronic pain, you may want to consider looking for ways to improve your environment. Here are different ways we suggest changing up your home environment:
Clutter is often the cause of much of our stress at home. By simply decluttering your home, you can clear your mind, which makes it easier to focus and think and reduces stress.
Some people find that rearranging a familiar space helps them relieve stress. It presents a new, unknown view, which can help your mindset.
● Create Meditation Space
We often recommend meditation to help our clients relax and reduce their stress levels. Creating a space specifically designated for meditating is a great way to improve your health.
● Purchase Plants
Purchasing oxygen-rich plants also improves the air within your home, which can, in turn, help you reach your health goals.
● Spend Time With People, Not Technology
You would be surprised at how technology can negatively affect your mindset. By surrounding yourself with people you love instead of seeking approval from people behind a screen, you can clear your mind.
Additional Chronic Pain Management Tools
In addition to all of the chronic pain management methods we listed above, there are some additional methods that may help alleviate your pain. Here are some of the other methods we recommend:
● Chiropractic Therapy
● Massage Therapy
● Heat Therapy
● Consistent Exercise
● Healthy Diet
Though the solutions we have listed out may help solve your chronic pain problems, there also may be a deeper underlying issue that needs to be identified. At Bomberg Chiropractic, we will schedule an initial consultation with you to analyze areas that are causing you pain before creating a treatment plan for you. No matter what may be causing your chronic pain, we are committed to finding the source and treating it, so you can have a better quality of life and get back to the things you enjoy most.
