[Long Term Pain] What is it about me? I’m not injured again, Master Bone Clinic will analyze the reasons for everyone!
Almost everyone feels pain from time to time. When you cut your finger or pull a muscle, the pain is what your body tells you where the problem is. Once the wound has healed, you will no longer be injured. These are just short-term pains. Of course, everyone will not feel depressed!
Chronic pain is different. A few weeks, months or even years after the injury, your body will feel very uncomfortable. Doctors usually define chronic pain as any pain that lasts 3 to 6 months or longer.
Chronic pain can have a real impact on your daily life and mental health. But you can ask your doctor for assistance in treatment.
Why does chronic pain linger?
The feeling of pain comes from a series of messages that run through the nervous system. When you are injured, the injury will turn on the pain sensor in that area. They send information in the form of signals, which propagate from nerve to nerve until it reaches your brain. Your brain processes the signal and sends a message that you are harmed.
Usually, the signal stops when the cause of the pain is eliminated, for example: your body repairs the wound in the finger or muscle tear. However, due to chronic pain, nerve signals will continue to be emitted even if you are cured.
What conditions cause chronic pain?
Sometimes, chronic pain can start without any obvious cause. But for many people, it starts after an injury or health condition. Some of the main reasons are:
Past injury or surgery
Migraines and other headaches
Fibromyalgia, a disease that makes people feel muscle pain all over the body
Symptoms of pain:
Chronic pain ranges from mild to severe. It can go on or come and go day after day. The pain feels like:
It’s a dull pain
Sometimes pain is just one of many symptoms, including:
Feeling tired or rubbed off
Don’t feel hungry
Lack of energy
Chronic pain and your mental health
Chronic pain can interfere with your daily life and prevent you from doing what you want and need to do. This can damage your self-esteem and make you feel angry, depressed, anxious and depressed.
The connection between your emotions and pain forms a cycle. When injured, you are more likely to feel depressed. This will make your pain worse. The link between depression and pain is why doctors often use antidepressants as a treatment for chronic pain. These drugs can relieve pain and emotional tension caused.
Pain can also interfere with sleep and increase stress levels. Lack of sleep and more stress can exacerbate the pain.
Get help for chronic pain
If you are injured and your condition does not seem to get better, see your primary care doctor or pain specialist. They can help you find relief, so the pain will not make you live a life. Some options include medication, relaxation therapy, physical therapy, acupuncture and lifestyle changes, such as getting enough sleep and not smoking.

The pain may be related to [spine displacement] or scoliosis, do not take it lightly for frequent back pain! │Master Bone Clinic Bone Reduction Chiropractic Pain Treatment Center
Scoliosis is the lateral curvature of the spine, which most often occurs during the growth spurt before puberty. Scoliosis can be caused by diseases such as cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy, but the cause of most scoliosis is unclear. Approximately 3% of teenagers suffer from scoliosis.
Most cases of scoliosis are mild, but as children grow, some spinal deformities continue to become more severe. Severe scoliosis can cause disability. A particularly severe curvature of the spine reduces the space in the chest and makes it difficult for the lungs to function properly.
X-rays are usually used to closely monitor children with mild scoliosis to see if the curvature has worsened. In many cases, no treatment is required. Some children will need to wear a seat belt to prevent the curve from getting worse. Others may need surgery to prevent the deterioration of scoliosis and correct severe cases of scoliosis.
The signs and symptoms of scoliosis may include:
One shoulder bone is more conspicuous than the other
One hip is higher than the other
If the lateral curvature of the spine becomes worse, in addition to the left and right curvature, the spine will also rotate or twist. This causes the ribs on one side of the body to protrude further than the ribs on the other side.
When to see the doctor
If you notice signs or symptoms of scoliosis in your child, see a doctor. However, gentle curves may develop without the parent or child’s knowledge, as they appear gradually and usually do not cause pain. Sometimes teachers, friends, and sports teammates are the first to notice a child’s scoliosis.
Doctors do not know what causes the most common scoliosis-although it seems to involve genetic factors, because the disease tends to spread in the family. Uncommon types of scoliosis may be due to:
Neuromuscular diseases, such as cerebral palsy or muscular dystrophy
Birth defects affect the development of spine bones
Spinal injury or infection
The most common risk factors for scoliosis include:
age. Signs and symptoms usually begin during the growth spurt before puberty.
gender. Although both boys and girls develop mild scoliosis at about the same rate, girls have a higher risk of curvature and require treatment.
family history. Scoliosis can occur in the family, but most children with scoliosis have no family history.
Although most people with scoliosis have mild disease, scoliosis can sometimes cause complications, including:
Damage to the lungs and heart. In severe scoliosis, the ribs may press on the lungs and heart, making breathing more difficult and the heart difficult to pump out.
Back problems. Adults with scoliosis are more likely to suffer from chronic back pain than the general population.
appear. As scoliosis worsens, it may cause more noticeable changes-including uneven hips and shoulders, protruding ribs, and lateral movement of the waist and trunk. People with scoliosis usually become aware of their appearance.
