Accident Injury Care
Chronic Pain and Its Effect On You
Pain is one of the most intolerable results of an accident. It will invariably keep you from living your life the way you want to live it by restricting your movement and your capabilities, sometimes to a debilitating level.
What Is Chronic Pain Syndrome?
Chronic Pain Syndrome is an unceasing, unrelenting feeling of pain in one or more body parts, and it sometimes renders the sufferer almost completely unable to function normally. It’s often addressed by the “mainstream” method of opioid prescriptions and surgical solutions, but there are other ways to deal with the pain. Treating the damage that’s causing the pain, rather than just treating the symptom, is a great first step and can often be accomplished without surgery.
What Causes Chronic Pain Syndrome?
Chronic pain can have a single, isolated root cause or multiple related causes. Sometimes, it’s impossible to even determine the cause of the pain. Often, an accident resulting in an injury damages nerves or joints that aren’t able to heal properly, and that damage leads to unending pain for the patient. Whether your injury is due to an accident or negligence or something else, the injury must be properly treated in order to allow you to live your life to your liking. Car accidents account for hundreds of thousands of such injuries every year. Work-related injuries are just as common. Some of the most typical injuries include:
• Neck injuries like whiplash
• Extremity injuries, such as broken limbs
• Back injuries that lead to dislocated discs or worse
Eliminating and Preventing Chronic Pain
Our unique offerings in accident injury care treatment can be combined and recombined to find the solution that works for the individual patient. Accidents that lead to chronic pain are as diverse as the treatments available to address it. Perhaps your condition responds best to a program that incorporates chiropractic, massage and injection therapies, or maybe you need a nerve block or radiofrequency neuroablation to gain relief. Our specialists work to find the methodologies that work best to address the underlying cause of the pain, often effectively eliminating it completely. Opioids can’t do that – in fact the risks of opioid use are often so extreme that they do more damage than good. At best, they offer a short reprieve from the condition. Our process is to find the direct cause of the pain and treat that in order to give you the most relief.
