Pain can occur on any part of your body or all of it at once. It has many potential causes stemming from illnesses and injuries. Common causes of pain are:
Additionally, your pain might come with other symptoms. Along with your pain, you might also notice that you feel depressed or angry, get nauseated frequently, or are always tired.
The underlying cause of all types of pain is your nervous system. Your pain may be dull, intense, throbbing, constant, short-term, or long-term. There are as many types of pain as there are causes! Because of this, your pain management plan is highly personalized and monitored.
Body Lounge Park Cities offers several types of pain management to get you back to feeling your best. Your pain management plan might include:
Functional dry needling is a pain management method in which short, thin needles are inserted into your tense muscles that are causing pain.
Cupping is a technique involving small cups that are placed on your body. They separate your tissues to help you move more easily and increase blood flow in painful areas.
During e-stim therapy, your muscles are stimulated with electricity for short-term pain relief.
During IASTM, your provider uses specialized tools to relieve tightness in your body and the pain that comes with it.
Chiropractic treatments loosen your body and can relieve pain in your neck and back.
Usually, addressing your underlying condition treats the pain that comes with it. Sometimes, the pain doesn’t go away or has no discernible cause. The main goal of pain management is to minimize your pain rather than eliminate it completely.
Minimizing your pain allows you to work productively and participate in your daily activities unimpeded by extreme discomfort.
At your first pain management appointment, your provider evaluates your pain and asks questions about its quality and intensity. You may need to undergo diagnostic tests if you don’t already know the cause of your pain. Then, the team creates a plan that helps you deal with your pain and any other side effects like depression, anxiety, weakness, or stiffness.
If your pain is stopping you from fully enjoying your life and going to work, call or book your appointment for pain management online at Body Lounge Park Cities today.
