How to Cope with Chronic Pain

Persistent, intense, recurring pain is not normal. If you’re experiencing constant or episodic pain, you need to contact a member of our team to schedule a pain relief consultation. Pain is the body’s natural reaction to a negative stimulus, but when it persists day and night it can severely hinder your ability to get through your day or accomplish tasks which before seemed simple. If you are experiencing intense pain at least twice a week, something is wrong and the source needs to be identified.

According to an article published by the American Chiropractic Association:

30% to 80% of people with chronic pain will have some type of depression. The combination of chronic pain and depression is often associated with greater disability than either depression or chronic pain alone. People with chronic pain and depression suffer dramatic changes in their physical, mental, and social well-being—and in their quality of life. Such people often find it difficult to sleep, are easily agitated, cannot perform their normal activities of daily living, cannot concentrate, and are often unable to perform their duties at work.

Chiropractor Broomfield Co – How to Cope with Chronic Pain

Pain that is persistent can create so many other problems. Many people that suffer with chronic pain sometimes turn to be reliant on pain meds, drinking alcohol too often and they often find themselves depressed. One thing you should stay away from at all cost is cigarette smoking. Smoking deeply worsens circulation problems which can contribute to your pain. Additionally, smoking increases the risk of heart disease, cancer and can worsen peripheral neuropathy.

Taking a holistic approach to healing your pain can put you on a path to wellness and living a better and pain-free life. For starters, call your chiropractor as soon as possible to explain to them exactly what you’re feeling. If you don’t have a chiropractor and you’re from the Broomfield Colorado or surrounding areas we would love to help you.

Some other ideas to help you cope is learning how to meditate. Deep breathing and meditation are techniques that help your body relax, which may ease pain. Tension and tightness seep from muscles as they receive a quiet message to relax.

Deep breathing is also a relaxation technique. Find a quiet location, a comfortable body position, and block out distracting thoughts. Then, imagine a spot just below your navel. Breathe into that spot, filling your stomach with air. Let the air fill you from your stomach up, then let it out, like deflating a balloon.

Avoid people or situations that make you feel stress or negativity. Stress and chronic pain are enemies and they will make eachother miserable. Instead surround yourself with people, activities such as a nice walk on a beautiful day and soothing music to keep your stress level down.
