Start your recovery.
Pain is often a result of chronic conditions (i.e. arthritis), injury (i.e. herniated disk or torn ligaments), or pain disorders (i.e. fibromyalgia, chronic headache).
Pain can become understood to be chronic if left unresolved for more than 3 months following the acute onset, or if it extends beyond the anticipated period of healing.
Studies have linked chronic pain with higher rates of depression, anxiety, and sleep disturbances, and anyone suffering prolonged pain should seek an informed opinion from a physiotherapist. With a customized pain management program in place, patients will enjoy a better quality of life, increased mobility, freedom to partake in a range of activities on daily basis. Addressing chronic pain in this way serves to mitigate the risk of becoming reliant on potentially addictive medications.
