Living with pain affects you in so many ways. Some of the effects of pain are physical, but a lot of them are mental and emotional. Dealing with constant pain is enough to wear you down. You feel tired all the time, and you just want the pain to end. This is definitely the case when discussing arthritis pain. Fortunately, we offer various pain management solutions at our office.
Arthritis pain comes in multiple varieties. Arthritis pain can be burning, it can be dull, or it can be a sense of pressure that makes you feel like you’re being crushed by a boa constrictor. If you are currently battling with arthritis pain, know that you’re not alone. In fact, it is estimated that more than 50 million Americans are dealing with one type of arthritis or another.
There are a lot of things that cause arthritis. Really, there are multiple things working together that lead to the pain and discomfort you feel with arthritis. Arthritis pain is the result of a complicated interaction between your body and your brain. It is your body’s way of telling you that something’s wrong and that there’s something that needs to be treated. It’s telling you that you have an injury of some sort and that the injury needs to be addressed.
Everyone feels arthritis pain differently. Two different people can have the exact same level of damage to their joints and have drastically different levels of pain. Everyone has a unique threshold and a unique tolerance for pain. Pain is completely subjective, especially when it comes to something like arthritis. In addition to the level of joint damage and inflammation you are experiencing, there are a lot of other factors are going to determine how severely you experience the pain.
As you can see, arthritis pain is a very individual and personal thing. As such, pain management techniques for arthritis also need to be individual and personal. Just because a particular treatment or therapy worked for a friend or family member does not mean that it is going to work for you.
