Arthritis and Chronic Pain Management

pain-managementSources Of Chronic Pain

Chronic pain comes in all shapes and sizes. Athletes experience chronic pain after a game or a workout, and people who have been sitting at a desk for decades can develop chronic pain in their hips and back. Not to mention Arthritis sufferers. There are plenty of medications available for people with chronic pain, however more and more people are turning to cold therapy treatment called Whole Body Cryotherapy.

Some of the more common sources of chronic pain include:

  • Exercise;
  • Surgical procedures;
  • Arthritis;
  • Back injuries;
  • Joint injuries;
  • Excessive wear to the knees, shoulders and back;
  • Extended illnesses;
  • Lingering effects of an injury such as a broken bone.

There is a good chance that you either know someone in chronic pain, or you yourself suffer from discomfort that will not go away. Once your doctor indicates that your pain is not going to go away, it is time to find pain management solutions that really work.

Managing The Pain

There are plenty of ways that people use to try and manage pain. Some methods use conventional medical practices, while others attempt to use alternative medicine.

Some of the more common pain management methods include:

  • Pain medication;
  • Physical therapy;
  • Chiropractic care;
  • Massage therapy;
  • Acupuncture;
  • Natural herbs and compounds;
  • Application of cold to the affected area.

Medical science is constantly developing new ways to try and manage pain, but one of the most effective pain management methods is based on a very simple idea.

When you receive an injury, the first response is to put something cold on that injury to numb the pain and reduce the swelling. Cryotherapy is a pain management method that takes the idea of using cold to handle pain to a new level and it is becoming the pain management method of choice for many people.

Using Cryotherapy To Manage Your Pain

Cryotherapy enhances the reasons why you place extreme cold on your ankle when you injure it. For long-term and chronic pain situations, regular treatments involving extreme cold can have several effects that not only manage the pain, but could help the patient reduce their pain to a level that is manageable without any other type of treatment.

Slowing The Nerve Signals

As an immediate relief of chronic pain, Whole Body Cryotherapy slows the sensations of pain by slowing down the nerve responses to pain stimulus in the body. When people with chronic pain get treated in cryotherapy, the first thing they notice is that the cold “takes the edge off” the pain. As it slows down the nerve responses, cryotherapy can turn a burning pain into a dull pain that is much easier to manage.

Increasing The Production Of Epinephrine

Most people do not realize that the body does have a chemical it produces to help offset the feeling of pain. The problem with chronic pain sufferers is that the body often does not produce enough epinephrine to combat their pain.

But cryotherapy helps to stimulate the glands that produce epinephrine, and helps to focus more of the chemical on the problem area. People who get involved in regular cryotherapy sessions find that there is a lingering increase in epinephrine production that lasts even when the session is over.

Reduces Swelling

Cryotherapy takes the idea of reducing swelling through the use of extreme cold to a whole new level. The inflammation reduction effects of persistent cryotherapy sessions can become long-term after a while. The reduction of swelling not only helps to control chronic pain, but it also does its part to make sure that the pain does not get worse.

Cryotherapy And Arthritis

The ability of cryotherapy to reduce inflammation and help inspire the production of pain-reducing chemicals makes it an ideal treatment for arthritis.

When people with arthritis get involved in regular cryotherapy treatments, they get an immediate sensation of relief that most medications cannot produce. But it is the long-term pain management benefits that cryotherapy offers that can help people with arthritis to feel less pain and get back to living their lives.

People who suffer from chronic pain will experiment with alternative medical solutions that may or may not offer relief.

Whole Body Cryotherapy is a simple pain management process that is based on a concept that has been proven to work time and time again. By getting involved with regular cryotherapy treatments monitored by professionals, you can start to get your pain under control and ease back into the life you want to live.
