“What is Chronic Pain?”

Chronic pain is ongoing pain that lasts six or more months. Pain is a signal your body uses to let you know that your body is not functioning properly and should be evaluated. Some pain is acute and resolves within a few days or a few weeks after the initial injury or condition heals. However, it can become Chronic and cause Multiple Difficulties in other areas from Compensation, Spasms, Arthritis, Insomnia, Immune Weakness, and Narcotic Use. 

Chronic pain continues long after the initial injury or condition and can be disorders associated with “Muscles, Joints, or Nerves” that Do Not Resolve. Chronic pain may be related to an injury, or just accumulate over time, depending on the etiology.

The OrthoMed Pain & Sports Medicine “Team of Experts” takes an Individual Holistic Approach to your chronic pain issues, while offering Conservative, Interventional, and Regenerative Medicine Treatments that can “Help Your Body Heal Your Body,” ease discomfort, and restore your normal function. 

“What Causes My Chronic Pain?”

Chronic pain may develop from an Acute Injury, Cumulative Trauma, Degenerative Condition, Autoimmune Disorders, Neurological Dysfunction, System/ Organ Weakness, Disease Processes, and Any Disruption of your Bodies Balance from Internal or External Forces.
