Chronic pain occurs when the nerve pathways behave unusually. This may result in the nerve constantly sending pain signals eventhough the injury has healed up OR the nerve can become sensitized and greatly exaggerating the pain signal.
Managing chronic pain requires a complete overhaul of our lifestyle. To tackle chronic pain, chiropractors utilize the 3 Ts approach. The 3 Ts are:
Mental health is a key to managing pain perception. Stress, depression and anxiety can exacerbate chronic pain. Having a positive pain belief and reducing lifestyle stressors can reduce the overloading of our nervous system.
Traumas are tissue damages that arise from an injury. Our goal is to manage and rehabilitate an injury thoroughly to ensure complete recovery from the tissue damage.
Diet and nutrition can alter the chemical and inflammatory markers in our body. A modern processed food diet high in sugar, energy and fat can further amplify the inflammations associated with chronic pain.
Chronic pain takes more than a magic pill to solve. It requires a holistic approach that encompasses the management of our mental health, diet and appropriate management of our biomechanical injuries.
