Physicians Medical Group of Cleveland is more than just a state of the art chiropractic clinic, sports medicine facility and physical therapy center. Our Cleveland Chiropractic clinic offers chronic and acute pain management services.
There is no magic treatment or cure for chronic pain but there are many ways to manage. Traditionally, dealing with the underlying cause is where to begin. This can involve development of self-management skills and certain lifestyle changes.
Pain levels range from mild or occasional to severe and constant. The pain can be for seconds or extended periods of time, even months. Or pain can disappear as quickly as it started.
Common causes of pain include:
- Broken bones
- Dental procedures
- Burns or cuts
- Labor pains and childbirth
Some underlying causes of chronic pain can be:
- Back pain
- Cancer related
- Nerve damage (neurogenic pain)
Drug treatments for chronic pain are treated by level of severity usually starting with analgesics or non-narcotic pain relivers. These include NSAIDs such as aspirin or ibuprofen and non-NSAIDs like acetaminophen.
However, when the above treatments are not effective, stronger medications are needed. Opioid agents and other pain relievers are most useful with chronic or acute pain management. Our Cleveland Chiropractic clinic offers chronic and acute pain management services.
