Chronic & Persistent Pain
Why am I in pain?
Understanding why the body feels pain is the first step towards reducing it. There’s many factors that can contribute to your pain or its severity. Think of the nervous system as the body’s control center, especially when it comes to the level of pain that you’re experiencing. Pain can be made worse by stress, poor body mechanics or posture, poor sleep patterns, diet, inactivity, poor coping skills, or anticipation of pain.
Exercise is one tool physical therapists use to treat your chronic and persistent pain. Not only will it help your nervous system to reduce the pain signals, but you’ll also be benefiting your bones, muscles, heart, lungs, and other areas of your health. A physical therapist can also help you to understand and manage your pain levels, so you can easily identify the factors that contribute to them.
