Chronic Pain Chesterton

Chronic Pain Chesterton

Chronic pain is an unfortunately common condition. In fact, a survey from 2019 found that as many as 20 percent of US adults suffered from chronic pain. Of those, over 7 percent had pain that limited their work or life activities most days. Finding a pain management solution that works for you can help you get back to living your daily life. At Pain Control Associates, LLC, our doctors near Chesterton will work with you to find a treatment that is appropriate for your condition. 

What is chronic pain?

According to the Cleveland Clinic, chronic pain lasts for months or years and may stem from a variety of sources. This is different from acute pain, which doesn’t last as long and often goes away soon after the cause is treated. Some of the most common types of chronic pain include arthritis, back or neck pain, recurring headaches, nerve damage, and pain related to cancer. Finding a treatment that helps improve your condition ultimately depends on what that condition is, but there are a number of options available to you. 

Chronic pain looks different to everyone. It may come and go, or seem as though it never goes away at all. The way that you experience the pain itself may differ as well: aching, burning, stiffness or throbbing can all be lasting sensations that impact your daily life. In some circumstances, chronic pain is associated with the development of other symptoms, like anxiety or fatigue. Our Chesterton doctors at Pain Control Associates, LLC take your condition seriously and will work with you to find an effective treatment. 

What does treatment for chronic pain look like?

Treatment for chronic pain typically starts with a diagnosis. At your first pain management appointment with Pain Control Associates LLC, we’ll discuss your symptoms and health history with you to get a better idea of who you are and why you’re seeking care. We’ll perform a physical exam, and may recommend additional testing. At the appointment, you’ll also get a chance to get to know your doctor and ask questions about the options available to you. 

Treatment for chronic pain may take many forms, but usually involves a multidisciplinary approach. This might include medicine, physical therapy, epidural injections, or surgery. An epidural injection typically only takes a few minutes to administer and is a method of distributing long-lasting medications like cortisone. While the procedure itself is short, it’s recommended to rest for the remainder of the day after receiving an injection.
