If you suffer from chronic pain, you are not alone. Nearly 50 million adults in the United States experience significant chronic pain or severe pain, according to the American Pain Society. Pain can prevent you from going to work or school, taking care of your family, or participating in your favorite pastimes. Fortunately, our Sacramento chiropractor provides pain management care through a non-invasive, prescription free pain relief for fibromyalgia, neck pain, back pain, sciatic nerve pain, lower back pain, and other types of chronic pain.
Pain is associated with many illnesses and injuries. Sometimes pain itself is the disease. Back pain may be associated with misaligned bones of the spine, for example, while neck pain may be the result of “text neck” from excessive use of a smartphone or other mobile device.
Pain can also be the primary problem, such as headache pain or neuropathic pain that occurs in the nervous system.
You cannot go on like this – dragging yourself through a day and hoping tomorrow will be better. You deserve relief from your pain. You need pain management from our chiropractor in Sacramento.
Pain Management – Identifying the Cause of Chronic Pain
The first step of pain management is to identify the underlying cause of pain.
Pain is usually the result of pressure on a nerve. Your nervous system transmits messages between your brain and the rest of your body. Your brain sends a message for your left foot to move in front of your right foot when walking, for example, and your nerves send messages about heat, cold, pressure and pain from your body to your brain. Excessive pressure on a nerve triggers the transmission of a pain impulse to your brain.
Neck pain, back pain, sciatic nerve pain, and lower back pain can be the result of misalignment of the bones of the spine, known as vertebrae. Chronic pain may also occur as the result of a herniated disc, which occurs when the rubbery exterior of the discs between each vertebra cracks and allows the liquid inside to leak out and press against the nerve.
