Chronic Pain Management from Our Brentwood Chiropractor

A Problem with Many Potential Causes

Chronic pain can be a lot harder to understand and cope with than acute pain. Acute pain is the kind of pain that occurs when you experience a sprain, fracture, torn muscle, crushed nerve, invasive surgical procedure, or severe illness. As you recover from your acute condition, you can expect to also say goodbye to your pain. By contrast, chronic pain is defined as pain that continues for at least three months, and perhaps indefinitely. Chronic pain may also have no obvious cause, or the pain may be referred to one part of the body from a completely different part, adding frustration and confusion to your discomfort. Classic examples of chronic pain conditions include:

    • Repetitive motion injuries that cause chronic inflammation, such as carpal tunnel syndrome and tennis elbow
    • Sciatica, a form of nerve impingement that causes leg pain
    • Arm or hand pain caused by cervical radiculopathy (another form of nerve impingement)
    • Chronic back pain from an untreated spinal misalignment or degenerative spinal condition
    • TMJ, which causes chronic jaw pain
    • Chronic headaches, which are typically caused by neck muscle tightness and spasms
    • Arthritis
    • Fibromyalgia, a systemic problem characterized by muscle pain and other discomforts
