What is Chronic Pain?
Chronic pain continues more than three months. This pain can come and go or always be there. Numerous health conditions can cause this pain. Individuals may describe this pain as aching, burning, shooting, stinging, squeezing or throbbing. Chronic pain can lead to symptoms of anxiety, depression, fatigue, mood swings and insomnia. Risk factors for this pain can include genetics, obesity, aging, previous injuries, strenuous activities, smoking and stress.
Los Angeles Pain Relief Treatment Options
There are numerous treatment options available for chronic pain. Over-the-counter and prescription medications can reduce inflammation and relax stiff muscles. Trigger point injections use medication to target muscles to provide relief. A rare treatment option is surgical implants that can either deliver controlled doses of pain medication or block pain signals in the brain. With transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation therapy, electrodes placed on the skin can be effective to stimulate nerves in the affected area to block pain.
Lifestyle modifications may also be recommended by your primary care provider as part of your treatment plan. Physical therapy, daily exercise and proper nutrition can help relieve pain. Psychological therapy can offer coping strategies for stress, sleep disturbances and emotional issues that can aggravate pain levels. Many other options are available and combinations may be recommended to help you achieve successful outcomes for long-term relief.
