Who can I see for chronic pain?
There are many different health practitioners who may be able to help you with chronic pain conditions. Consult with your GP or an allied health provider about your pain. Patients may receive advice from medical specialists (e.g. orthopaedic surgeons, rheumatologists, anaesthetists), allied health professionals and practitioners including physiotherapists, pharmacists, chiropractors, acupuncturists, and naturopaths.
At TherapyWorks, all of our practitioners are happy to work closely with you and offer our services alongside Western medical care. Our services are not an either or option rather a collaboration of all necessary health care services. We believe in the best of both worlds.
What is chronic pain?
Chronic pain is classed as pain that lasts for more than 3 months. A chronic pain condition can be caused by a variety of conditions, including: illness, musculoskeletal health issues, injury, surgery or cancer. Chronic pain conditions are different from acute pain conditions, which normally don’t last very long or resolve themselves.
Being in chronic pain can impact your mood, sleep, mental health, and just make life that little bit harder. Some medications or other clinical supplements, when used with therapies like physiotherapy, chiropractic, massage, acupuncture, psychological therapy and relaxation techniques, can help manage chronic pain.
What is the most common treatment for chronic pain?
Chronic pain treatments are as diverse as the different causes of chronic pain conditions. It all depends on your case.
From medications (over-the-counter and prescription drugs) to natural therapies such as acupuncture and chiropractic, the approaches vary. It is also important to note that no single technique or treatment is guaranteed to solve chronic pain relief. Many patients find relief through a combination of treatment options.
Common types of chronic pain medications include: nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (for example, aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen), topical pain relievers (creams, lotions), muscle relaxants, prescription painkillers.
Other options include trigger point injections, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation therapy (TENS), exercise, mind-body therapies and more.
