Chronic pain is defined as recurring or persisting pain that lasts longer than three months.

Approximately 20 percent of American adults suffer from chronic pain. Chronic pain is defined as recurring or persisting pain that lasts longer than three months. Chronic pain is often resistant to pain medication; therefore, other treatments may be necessary to alleviate the pain. These methods include therapeutic massage, exercise (including stretching and strength training), physical therapy, and acupuncture. Patients are suffering with pain due to old injuries, arthritis, tissue inflammation, or other degenerative conditions of the body. The usual medical answer is to put the patient on pain and “anti-inflammatory” medications to ease the pain while waiting in hope that the body will recover. However, this painkiller road to recovery is filled with potholes and often becomes the source health issues such as the side effects of long-term use of these two types of medications.

Chronic pain is subjective. Sufferers can experience different types of pain. Chronic pain can be described as:

  • Achy
  • Burning
  • Discomfort
  • Dull
  • Electrical
  • Pulsating
  • Shooting
  • Stabbing
  • Stiffness
  • Tender
  • Throbbing
  • Thudding
  • Tightness

Chronic pain management differs from acute care in that the goal is to first identify the causes of the symptoms rather than simply cut off the pain sensation. Once these physical, emotional, and nutritional factors are identified, we can treat the sources of the pain symptoms.
