What causes chronic pain?


Chronic pain can be caused by a variety of factors and is generally defined as pain that persists for three months or longer. In some cases, this enduring discomfort can result from acute pain not properly resolving after an injury or illness and evolving into a chronic condition.

Chronic pain may also manifest as a symptom of ongoing conditions such as cancer, arthritis, and a host of repetitive movement injuries, which involve stress to muscles, strains, or sprains.

Lingering chronic pain can also occur among patients following surgery. As individuals age, their susceptibility to the onset of both acute and chronic pain increases due to natural wear and tear on the body, a decline in muscle strength, and other factors.

These factors may collectively contribute to a complex pain presentation that significantly impacts an individual’s day-to-day life and can become unbearable without proper management.

What are the 5 A’s of chronic pain management?


The 5 A’s of chronic pain management make up a guideline used by healthcare providers that is used in the assessment and proper treatment of chronic pain.

“Analgesia,” the first A, focuses on alleviating pain through a variety of methods, including medications, physical therapies, and more advanced interventional treatments such as nerve blocks and more as are applicable.

“Activity,” the second A, focuses on enhancing and maintaining the patient’s ability to perform daily tasks, which chronic pain is capable of significantly impeding.

“Adverse effects,” the third A, involves evaluating the potential negative impacts of pain management treatments, such as the risks or complications that are associated with surgical interventions or the side effects of medications.

“Aberrant behaviors,” the fourth A, describes the potential issues related to the misuse of medications, including signs of dependency or addiction.

“Affect,” the fifth A, concerns the many emotional and psychological aspects involved with living with chronic pain, including how it can lead to or exacerbate mental health issues like anxiety and depression.

What to do when chronic pain is unbearable?


When it comes to seeking help for pain, chronic or otherwise, patients do not need to wait until it becomes unbearable. However, when it reaches this point it is essential to consult a pain management specialist for a comprehensive diagnosis and customized treatment plan.

Unbearable chronic pain can have adverse impacts on all aspects of an individual’s health and wellness and severely impede their ability to function. At Global Neuro & Spine Institute, specialists are equipped to provide comprehensive evaluations and utilize a variety of minimally invasive procedures tailored to address the specific sources of pain.

This can include a wide range of cutting-edge interventional pain management techniques as is needed. Managing unbearable pain not only helps in alleviating immediate discomfort but also facilitates patients’ engagement with other integral aspects of their treatment plan at an appropriate level, such as physical therapy and lifestyle modifications.

These steps are imperative for improving functional outcomes and enhancing overall quality of life, helping patients to regain mobility and reduce pain symptoms.

The standard treatment for chronic pain at Global Neuro & Spine Institute is highly personalized, based on a thorough assessment of the individual’s specific condition including the cause and severity of their chronic pain. Treatment strategies may involve a combination of interventional pain management, physical rehabilitation, and much more according to patient needs.
