Understanding Chronic Pain
Nobody wants to live in pain. Experiencing chronic pain, day in and day out, can take a toll—not just on the body, but also on the mind and on the spirit. Discovering an effective way to manage chronic pain is paramount—yet pain management comes with risks of its own. Sometimes, the medications that mitigate pain can become habit-forming or even addictive, creating dependence and leading to a whole other kind of pain.
Life with painkiller addiction can be just as bleak as life with chronic pain. The good news is a better life is possible. At The Well Recovery Center, we help men and women struggling with chronic pain take their first step toward healing, hope and wholeness. We aid them in their transition into a new, better life. Our holistic, dual diagnosis detox is a place of tranquility and healing—a place made for new beginnings. Our detox center is also pet-friendly, which allows our clients to make sure their furry friends are also looked after while they get the help they need.
What is Chronic Pain?
There are a few different ways to characterize chronic pain, including:
- Pain that does not go away as expected following an injury or an illness.
- Pain that is experienced as a shooting, aching, burning or electrical sensation.
- Pain marked by discomfort, soreness, tightness or stiffness.
The experience of chronic pain can lead to other problems, including:
- Withdrawal from relationships/ activities
- Mood changes
- Weakened immune system
- Addiction to harmful medications
Causes of Chronic Pain
Similarly, there are a number of causes that can potentially explain chronic pain, including:
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Nerve damage
Of course, chronic pain can also stem from injuries, surgeries or other medical conditions. Regardless of the cause of chronic pain, it is imperative to find a smart, effective and non-addictive way to manage it—something we can assist with at The Well Recovery Center.
