There are varying types of chronic pain that many Americans suffer from each year. Chronic pain can last months to even years and it can happen to any part of the body. Chronic pain often interferes with your daily life and can lead to depression or worsening depression, as well as anxiety. If you have been dealing with pain that has now lasted for over three months, it is considered chronic pain.
Chronic pain is a qualifying condition for pain management, and it is much different than that from acute pain. Acute pain occurs when you get hurt doing something or something happening to you, for whatever reason, the pain was caused but is likely to go away once healed. Chronic pain continues long after your recovery from an illness or injury had occurred.
Chronic pain is quite common and includes:
• Back pain
• Neck pain
• Headaches, particularly migraines
• Testicular pain
• Lasting pain within scar tissue
• Muscle pain all over the body
• Joint pain
• Cancer pain nearby a tumor
• Neurogenic pain which is damage to the nerves or another area of the nervous system
When it comes to chronic pain, there are many different types of pain medication that can be chosen to help manage your pain. Each choice has its benefits and disadvantages. Opioid medications are often the chosen pain relief choice for primary care physicians, opioids can become quite problematic after long periods of use, they will begin to fail to provide pain relief, and can be quite harmful as a prescription for relief from chronic pain.
Ketamine infusion therapy should be considered when you are dealing with pain that has lasted longer than three months, regardless of whether it comes and goes. This is because ketamine infusion therapy is a viable alternative for chronic pain treatment, especially in comparison to other addictive options available.
