Do You Suffer From Chronic Pain?
According to the American Academy of Pain Medicine, chronic pain affects 100 million American adults. This is more than heart disease, cancer and diabetes combined. It can plague young and old alike and strikes everyone differently. Many chronic pain sufferers have resigned themselves to a life of pain and narcotics, but fortunately, physical therapy can help.
Chronic pain is very complex; so don’t expect one treatment to be the cure-all. Often, the only way to approach it is with a combination of treatments such as medications, lifestyle changes, psychological treatments, and massage/physical therapy.
