Chronic pain causes more than an irritating pain, in some cases, it can actually limit movement. Overtime, the pain can lead to stiffness, inflexibility, reduced strength and stamina. All of these physical effects can impact the daily life of someone suffering from chronic pain. Long-term chronic pain can even impact the nervous system causing sensitization. Sensitization is a form of hypersensitivity that can worsen the existing pain or even cause discomfort long after you have healed.
At Louisiana Pain Specialists, we can actually schedule a virtual telemedicine visit. Our Board Certified Pain Doctors can help you with your chronic pain over the phone and internet. If an in-person visit is necessary, we can schedule a visit at one of our locations which are all following the necessary safety precautions. ~ Dr. Suneil (Neil) Jolly
Chronic pain can actually impact the mind causing increased stress, exhaustion, irritability and depression. The most common problem that sufferers experience is the inability to sleep due to the pain. The lack of sleep not only causes exhaustion and irritability, but it also slows the healing process down even more. Some people develop cognitive problems because they find it difficult to focus on any task when the pain is consuming all of their energy and focus. These physiological effects impact normal activities, job performance, and even relationships.
Benefits Of Treatment
Chronic pain can be treated in a variety of ways. Not all conditions are curable, but they are treatable. A comprehensive and customized pain treatment plan is the best option for reducing and even eliminating the discomfort from chronic pain. A treatment regimen can include a combination of physical therapy, exercise, medication, surgery, and other interventional treatments.
