Conquering Chronic Pain

Chronic pain, which is defined as pain lasting for more than three months, affects millions of people worldwide. It can arise from a variety of causes, including injury, surgery, arthritis, fibromyalgia, and nerve damage. Chronic pain affects both physical and mental health, leading to reduced quality of life, disability, and depression. Fortunately, Tristar Physical Therapy in Morristown and Bean Station is helping patients reclaim their lives from the debilitating effects of chronic pain.

Introduction to Chronic Pain and Its Causes

Chronic pain is a complex condition that affects the nervous system, making it difficult to diagnose and treat. It can result from tissue damage, inflammation, nerve damage, or changes in the brain and spinal cord. Chronic pain may be localized, affecting a specific area, or generalized, affecting the whole body. It can be sharp, dull, burning, or throbbing, and may be accompanied by other symptoms like stiffness, fatigue, and sleep disturbances.

Common causes of chronic pain include:

  • Arthritis
  • Back pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Nerve damage
  • Headaches
  • Cancer
  • Surgery
  • Injury
  • Infection
  • Autoimmune disorders
