Pain Management Clinic in Croydon

For many people with this condition, isolation and inactivity become normal simply because pain becomes too overwhelming, unpredictable, and uncontrollable.

In addition, the general nature of unrelenting pain often makes it difficult for people to get the care and understanding they need from the medical community. After hearing “it’s all in your head” numerous times, people often feel hopeless, and resign themselves to a life of pain and depression.

What’s the Difference Between Acute and Chronic Pain?

Acute pain is generally pain from an immediate cause, such as injury, surgery, or disease. As inflammation decreases and healing takes place, pain levels decrease. When acute pain lasts longer than three months, it is classified as chronic pain.

Chronic pain is long-lasting pain that won’t go away and affects the quality of life of those affected. Many of our aged care residents are affected, and most see it as a normal part of ageing, when it isn’t!

Even when the original source of the pain is healed, chronic pain may still be felt. Changes in the nervous system may cause abnormal pain responses, leading patients to limit their movements or move in an unnatural manner to protect themselves from further damage.

How Does Chiropractic Help?

One of the most frustrating aspects of trying to treat chronic pain is referred pain. This type of pain is felt at a site that’s actually different from the affected part of the body. Referred pain is especially common when it comes to injuries related to the central nervous system, because pressure or blockages distort the signals being transferred to other parts of the body. What’s more, pressure or compression may create inflammation throughout the body and generate chronic pain.

Chiropractic is a natural and holistic approach to pain management. Dealing with the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, we find the source of your pain, correct any misalignments, and remove blockages interfering with the signals from your brain.

Pain is the body’s way of letting you know that something is wrong. While chronic pain can show up anywhere in the body, there are some common forms we see in our practice.

Dealing With Back Pain

Back pain is usually caused by a combination of muscle spasm and joint restrictions, which lead to symptomatic issues. There is usually more stiffness felt in normal movements than usual, especially around the buttocks and lower back. It may occur suddenly or build up over time. Many problems come from poor posture, poor lifting techniques, and other common causes which trigger acute bouts of back pain.

Managing Neck Pain

There are several forms of neck pain, and every patient presents with their own unique symptoms. Pain caused by overuse or micro-trauma should be assessed by a chiropractor to determine a course of action. Poor posture at work may lead to rounded shoulders and neck-forward position.

Addressing Knee Pain

The knee is a complex joint that is susceptible to injury and pain. There are many different causes of knee pain, including arthritis, tendinitis, bursitis, and meniscus tears. While medication can help to relieve pain, it doesn’t address the underlying source of the problem. Chiropractic care, on the other hand, helps get to the root cause of knee pain.
