Chronic Pain Management In Blakehurst – How We Can Help
What is chronic pain exactly?
According to Bupa, it is estimated that around one in five people lives with chronic pain on a daily basis. While short-term or acute pain is brief and generally acts as a warning for the individual to seek help, chronic pain is an ongoing pain that doesn’t go away. It exists beyond a reasonable time frame and can result in a person’s inability to sleep properly making them feel fatigued, irritable, and in some cases depressed. What’s more, chronic pain doesn’t respond to normal techniques of pain management such as non-opioid painkillers or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and typically includes problems such as herniated/bulging discs, spondylolysis and nerve compression disorders such as sciatica.
Here at Blakehurst Chiropractic, our experienced team can call upon a number of non-surgical procedures including spinal adjustments to address problems such as muscle tension and inflammation.
