How Chiropractic Relieves Chronic Pain

Chronic pain is a condition that affects millions of people. The reasons behind it and the symptoms that occur from it run the gamut. Chronic pain is often due to a dysfunction or injury within the spine or musculoskeletal system (the body’s joints and soft tissues). 

Chiropractors are well-versed in these categories, understanding how these complex structures in the body should function and the intricacies necessary for comfort and balance. Your local chiropractor offers comprehensive services that determine the reason behind chronic pain and utilizes methods that allow the body to heal and strengthen.

If chronic pain is interrupting your life and deterring you from being active and engaged, read on to learn how you can take back control. 


What is Chronic Pain?

Chronic pain is long-term pain that lasts beyond the expected recovery period, persists after an injury has healed, or accompanies a chronic health condition. It’s an abnormal response to healing that doesn’t improve with time, lasting months or years. The pain can be continuous or come and go. 

Injuries and diseases can create changes in your body, leaving you more sensitive to discomfort, and these changes can stay in place long after you’ve healed from the original injury or disease, generating chronic pain. 


There are numerous reasons you may experience chronic pain, including:

  • Conditions such as arthritis or joint damage, nerve damage, and diabetes
  • Past injuries, such as a sprain or broken bone
  • Past illnesses or infections, such as cancer
  • Psychological factors, such as stress, anxiety, and depression
  • And others


Reducing Chronic Pain Through Lifestyle Changes

When you live with ongoing pain, every aspect of life is affected. Work, exercise, family, and social engagements can suffer dramatically. Finding lasting relief is the goal. There are natural ways to help reduce your pain that contribute to real healing and can be of benefit physically, mentally, and emotionally.


Ways to naturally ease chronic pain include:

  • Reduce stress using a healthy approach: Consider meditation, soothing music, mindfulness, breathing techniques, and others that promote relaxation in body and mind.
  • Exercise regularly: Adhere to at least 30 minutes of daily exercise, whatever that looks like to you. Whether it’s yoga or CrossFit, exercise and stretch to improve strength and overall comfort, as mood is enhanced. 
  • Get quality sleep: Getting enough good sleep is incredibly important for human function on every level. Lack of sleep can induce many problems and contribute to stress, anxiety, depression, weight gain, and irritability, among others.
  • Eat healthy foods and hydrate: What we put in our body matters. Be sure to get the nutrition and water intake necessary for a healthy body that can support you. Anti-inflammatory foods may also be adding to your pain. 


These adjustments may be able to reduce your discomfort, but working with a chiropractor will ensure you’re getting the optimal treatment strategy for your unique needs.
