Pain is a signal in your nervous system that something is going wrong. It is an unpleasant feeling, such as a prick, tingle, sting, burn, or ache. Pain may be sharp or dull, constant or intermittent (comes and goes). There are different types of pain:
· Acute pain often starts suddenly and resolves in a short time ie, 3- 6 months for pain to resolve
· Chronic pain lasts for a long period of time ie, more than 6 months
· Breakthrough pain – returns despite treatment or may be in increase in the intensity of the chronic pain. This pain usually lasts for a long time.
At Life Pak Wellness Centre there are natural therapies for all types of pain. Every Thursday of each month Life Pak Wellness Centre offers a PAIN CLINIC. The most common types of pain that we treat are
1. Muscle pain or soft tissue pain- caused mainly by wear, tear or strain of the muscle or soft tissue
2. Nerve pain – as a result of diabetes, poor circulation, cervical spondylosis (neck arthritis), other nerve problems
3. Bone problems- osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis
4. Back pain – due to muscle problems, slipped discs or disc disease, spinal problems\
Pain is not something to suffer with or suffer through. Painkiller medications do not solve pain. Instead, they try to diminish or hide the pain so that the person is more comfortable. Not all pain require painkiller medications. Massages, elevation, rest, ice, compression can resolve certain pain. There are also more advanced therapies available to treat pain. Seek professional help early for best results.
