CHRONIC PAIN SYMPTOMS, CAUSES, AND TREATMENTS IN POMPANO BEACH
Acute pain which comes and goes in the company of an injury, infection or other short-term health challenge is distressing enough in its own right -- but pain resulting from an incurable chronic condition can seem like an endless nightmare that makes daily enjoyment of life difficult or impossible. This does not mean, however, that you have to dull your body and mind with a steady stream of potentially dangerous painkillers. Pine Chiropractic Center of Pompano Beach can provide natural, non-pharmaceutical treatments that relieve chronic pain by addressing its underlying causes and mechanisms, giving you a healthier way to feel better.
Pain that bothers you either constantly or in recurring bouts over a period of 6 months or longer is considered chronic pain. Chronic pain symptoms may take many different forms, including tight or stiff muscles, disabling headaches, sore feet, neck pain, back pain and shooting pains radiating through the extremities. It can also stem from many different causes. In many cases, a degenerative spinal condition such as spinal stenosis or bulging vertebral discs pinch nerve tissue to create chronic pain, while osteoarthritis and other degenerative joint conditions cause unremitting pain and inflammation.
Chronic diseases can also play a role in the chronic pain cases seen by our chiropractor in Pompano Beach. Diabetes, for instance, often causes a form of nerve damage such peripheral neuropathy, while fibromyalgia produces a combination of painful muscle knots and hypersensitivity to pain signals.

CHRONIC BACK PAIN CAUSES & SYMPTOMS IN POMPANO BEACH
CHRONIC BACK PAIN TREATMENT BY YOUR CHIROPRACTOR IN POMPANO BEACH, FL
As painful and debilitating as an acute back injury may be, at least you can easily understand where the pain is coming from and expect it to cease when the underlying condition goes away. But some conditions don't simply disappear over time, and neither do the pain symptoms they cause. If you suffer from chronic back pain, you need better solutions than a lifetime of drugs or resigning yourself to years of misery. Fortunately, Pine Chiropractic Center of Pompano Beach can provide those solutions through natural, non-surgical treatment methods at Pine Chiropractic Center of Pompano Beach.
While some forms of acute back pain may take months to finally fade, they eventually will once the underlying cause of the pain has healed, either spontaneously or with the aid of treatment. But pain that continues to plague you for more than 6 months, with or without an obvious cause, is categorized as chronic pain. Chronic back pain can be especially disabling because it can effectively rob you of your ability to stand, sit, sleep or walk. Many cases of chronic back pain have their origins in degenerative spinal conditions that sneak up on you over time. These may include:
- Facet joint osteoarthritis
- Spinal stenosis (narrowing of the canal encasing the spinal cord)
- Spondylolisthesis (slippage of the vertebrae)
- Age-related dehydration, flattening and herniation of the vertebral discs
- Chronic muscle strain from longstanding alignment issues that cause abnormal posture
One of the most notorious forms of chronic back pain is sciatica. This set of symptoms occurs when the sciatic nerve roots near the base of the spine are impinged. Results include not only lower back pain but also buttock, leg and foot discomfort.
