What does chronic pain do to a person?

By Staff | Jul 2, 2020

Chronic pain can last for months. When pain lasts this long, it is called chronic pain, and it can have severe consequences on the sufferer. It can manifest as headaches, burning or tingling sensations in different parts of the body, jolts of pain in the muscles or joints, etc.

Chronic pain can affect sufferers in the following ways:

Reduction in Sleep Quality – In a study of 268 patients with chronic pain, researchers found a link between pain intensity and sleep disturbance. Almost 90 percent of chronic pain patients had some form of sleep disorder.

Affects Cardiovascular Health – The study also found that people with chronic pain had a higher risk of suffering from cardiovascular health problems like hypertension.

Affects Quality of Life – Chronic pain sufferers find it difficult to handle daily tasks because every movement worsens their pain. Most chronic pain sufferers have little social interactions.

Cervical Chiropractic Care and Chronic Pain: A growing body of evidence suggests that there is a link between upper cervical injuries and chronic pain.

Digital X-ray and thermal imaging tests can detect if you have any unaddressed upper cervical. injuries.

To address the root cause of chronic pain, the specific chiropractor will administer a chiropractic adjustment and various types of care. This will correct the misalignment of the neck vertebrae and eliminate the irritation causing the pain.
