What Is Chronic Pain?

Are you struggling with chronic pain? You are not alone. Did you know there are more than 100 million Americans with the same condition? Arthritis, fibromyalgia, low back pain and migraines are just some of the common chronic pain conditions that affect many people for weeks, months or years.

If you have been suffering from recurring pain, it’s time to get help. You can change your life for the better by not ignoring the pain. Seeking treatment is your best recourse. Here are the telltale signs that you need pain relief; if you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you need to get in touch with a pain management specialist:

  • Frequent pain, even if mild
  • Recurring pain that interferes with your daily life
  • Pain that limits your mobility or ability to do your work
  • Pain that occasionally creeps up on you but has gradually become bothersome
  • Serious and debilitating pain


Did you know pain relief can be achieved simply by walking? It’s one of the best prescriptions for recurring pain conditions. Exercise triggers the production of our body’s natural painkillers called endorphins. Try to walk for 30 minutes a day, five days a week. In addition, strength training can reduce the pain. Aim for twice-a-week weight training sessions. But before doing any of these exercises, consult your doctor.

Whenever you’re stuck in traffic or glued to your office desk, don’t forget to take deep breaths once in a while. Stress can build up and trigger migraine or tension headaches. For a minute or so, inhale deeply and slowly. Feel your chest rise with each intake of air then slowly release it as you exhale. You may feel some of the tension and pain drift away.

If is also possible that food can trigger your pain condition. Fatty meats, red wine, cheese, milk and processed food items that contain MSG are the usual suspects. Keep a diary of everything you eat and discover which food items triggered the chronic pain.

Consider other pain relief techniques like acupuncture and yoga. As tempting as it may be, never overuse over-the-counter painkillers. While they are good for occasional use, taking them in high doses can be risky.

If you’re in pain, it is best to see a pain management specialist.
