Understanding the Pain
Chronic Pain Management Q & A
What is the goal of a pain management plan?
The goal of an effective pain-management plan is to relieve your pain and allow you to resume your daily activities with minimal discomfort. Chronic pain can be debilitating if not treated. Over time, constant pain and discomfort can cause depression and prevent you from remaining active.
The less active you are, the more pain begins to control your life. Having a pain-management plan in place can prevent this from happening.
Once Dr. Hughes knows what’s causing your pain, he can use chiropractic care and strength-building techniques to minimize your pain. By restoring balance to your musculoskeletal system and increasing your strength, he can improve your circulation and help you get back on the road to good health.
What are the benefits of chiropractic care when it is used to help manage pain?
Chiropractic care is an essential part of managing pain. Adjustments are used to restore balance in both your bones and the soft tissues of your body. When chiropractic care is used in conjunction with other treatment options, they work to enhance each other. If the patient is interested, they can receive additional strength and flexibility through shiatsu massage and martial arts training.
Regular chiropractic adjustments work to maintain positive balance throughout your body on all levels. Dr. Hughes can use each of these options to create an individual pain management plan that will allow you to get back to your normal routine without worrying about pain or discomfort.
What is included in an effective pain management plan?
An effective pain-management plan includes several components that work together to help reestablish a healthy balance, including:
- A well-rounded diet plan that contains the nutrients you need to keep your body strong and healthy
- An exercise or strength-building workout program designed to increase flexibility, maintain your strength and improve your range of motion
- Adequate amounts of rest that will allow your body to heal itself
- Treatment options, like chiropractic care, herbal supplements, and shiatsu
Dr. Hughes will evaluate your overall health and create a pain management plan that addresses your particular issues. As your needs change, Dr. Hughes can adjust your treatment plan so that it continues to provide the maximum benefits.
