Chronic pain signals remain active in the nervous system long after the tissue has healed, making this type of pain “chronic”. Chronic pain may be related to an initial injury such as an ankle sprain or disc herniation or be correlated to issues such as poor posture, surgical history, recurring injury, or arthritis.
It is, however, possible to experience persistent, long-term chronic pain without any past injury or body damage. Chronic pain may manifest from stressful physical effects as tense muscles or a limited ability to move.
Chiropractic care offers a variety of medication-free, non-invasive techniques and surgery-free modalities to treat chronic pain. Treatment options may include spinal manipulation, manual therapy, or therapeutic exercise to help alleviate suffering related to chronic pain.
Living with chronic pain can present significant physical, mental and emotional challenges. We, at Karuna, are here to help.
