Common causes of chronic pain
Chronic injury, diabetes, anxiety, and feeling depressed are all things that can work together to cause your neurological system to constantly be on high alert.
Chronic pain can show its ugly head in the form of back pain, joint pain, nerve pain, or headaches. Many chronic pain conditions arise from a neurophysiological context.
What Causes Chronic Pain?
Chronic pain can be caused by a variety of factors, and the best way to deal with it is to seek medical help.
Chronic pain happens because of one of the following causes:
Overuse injuries are common and can affect any area of the body that is used frequently. When correct posture is not used, damage to your joints and muscles can occur, resulting in long-term pain.
Certain diseases such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, shingles, and neuropathy as a result of diabetes, can lead to chronic pain.
Surgical treatment may be required to correct a structural problem; however, the rehabilitation process itself may be painful.
when you have an injury or misalignment in a certain area of your body, other parts of your body will adjust to compensate. This compensatory pain is the result of joints or muscles moving incorrectly, which generates strain on other areas of the body.
Any accident or injury on the job can result in chronic pain.
People involved in car accidents can develop widespread chronic pain in the weeks following the event.
Scona Sports & Physiotherapy Can Help Relieve Your Chronic Pain!
One of the primary goals of physical therapy is to manage pain and treat underlying causes, rather than masking symptoms with medications. Physical therapy can teach you how to move your body correctly to avoid injury. Our physical therapists are highly trained movement professionals, capable of identifying physical issues and addressing the underlying physiological causes of these issues.
We use thorough physical examinations at Scona Sports & Physiotherapy to evaluate your posture, weak and vulnerable body parts, and areas with limited range of motion and detect any gait or balance irregularities. All of these tests aid our therapists in determining the root cause of your pain.
