Types of Pain

There are many different types of pain, and each person experiences pain differently. Some of the most common types of pain include:

Chronic Pain

Chronic pain is defined as pain that lasts for more than three months. This type of pain can be caused by an injury, illness, or ongoing condition.

Acute Pain

Acute pain is short-term pain that typically has been occurring for only a few days or weeks. This type of pain is often the result of a recent personal injury or surgery.

Bone Pain

Bone pain is a common type of chronic pain caused by conditions such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and fractures. It can result from arthritis, a severe auto accident injury, fall, or another traumatic event.

Causes of Pain

There is no one cause of chronic pain. Instead, it can be caused by various factors, including:

Injury

Chronic pain can result from a previous injury that has not healed properly. For example, a personal injury, auto accident injury, or someone who suffers from whiplash may experience chronic neck pain.

Illness

Chronic pain can also be caused by chronic illnesses, such as cancer, multiple sclerosis, or fibromyalgia.

Conditions

Chronic pain can also be caused by certain conditions, such as spinal stenosis, irritable bowel syndrome, and chronic fatigue syndrome.

Stress

Stress can also be a contributing factor to chronic pain. When you are stressed, your body releases hormones that increase pain sensitivity.

Treatments for Pain

There is no one-size-fits-all treatment for chronic pain. However, several chiropractic treatments can help in pain relief. Some of the most common treatments include:

Halo Light Therapy

Halo light therapy is a type of chiropractic treatment that uses a light based therapy device called a Halo to deliver specific healing wavelengths of light to the body. Halo light therapy can help in pain relief and reduce inflammation as well as help ease many other conditions or issues.

Spinal Manipulation

Spinal manipulation is a chiropractic treatment that involves moving the spine into a specific position. Our chiropractor uses spinal manipulation to help relieve tension and pain in the spine.

Massage

Massage is a type of chiropractic treatment where the chiropractor uses hands-on massage techniques to improve blood circulation and relieve tension and pain.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a type of treatment that uses needles to stimulate specific points on the body. Acupuncture can help relieve pain and improve function.
