Get Out of the Chronic Pain Cycle.
Living with pain can make day-to-day tasks more difficult and far less enjoyable. While it is common to feel pain after an injury or surgery, that pain should subside once you have recovered.
If your pain is not going away, or if you have a chronic condition or disease, you will need a strategy to get out of it as quickly as possible without resorting to potentially addictive medicine.
The Running Physio in Toronto, ON can provide you with the tools and methods you need to make a full recovery and feel your best. Contact us today to schedule an appointment!
What Is Chronic Pain?
Chronic pain is defined as pain that lasts three months or longer. If you have been experiencing pain that you cannot seem to get rid of and it interferes with your daily activities, do not hesitate to contact our Toronto, ON clinic. Longstanding pain takes a multi-faceted approach to work through – and it all starts with learning how the path to feeling better looks.
Chronic pain happens because of one of the following causes:
Surgical treatment may be required to correct a structural problem; however, the rehabilitation process itself may be painful.
Any accident or injury on the job can result in chronic pain.
Certain diseases such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, shingles, and neuropathy as a result of diabetes, can lead to chronic pain.
when you have an injury or misalignment in a certain area of your body, other parts of your body will adjust to compensate. This compensatory pain is the result of joints or muscles moving incorrectly, which generates strain on other areas of the body.
People involved in car accidents can develop widespread chronic pain in the weeks following the event.
Overuse injuries are common and can affect any area of the body that is used frequently. When correct posture is not used, damage to your joints and muscles can occur, resulting in long-term pain.
How Can The Running Physio Help Relieve My Chronic Pain?
Rather than concealing symptoms with drugs, one of the fundamental goals of physiotherapy is to manage pain and treat underlying causes. Physiotherapy can help you avoid injury by teaching you how to move your body appropriately. Our Toronto, ON physiotherapists are highly trained movement professionals who can identify physical disorders and treat the underlying physiological causes.
At The Running Physio, we do extensive physical examinations to assess your posture, weaknesses and strengths, asymmetries, areas with limited range of motion, and any gait or balance problems. We also do a deep dive into lifestyle factors like stress and sleep – both very important variables in dealing with pain.
After the evaluation, a physiotherapist will develop a rehabilitation plan tailored to your individual needs. Your treatment plan will include both in-clinic and at-home therapy. Using advanced pain-relieving techniques and light strength-building activities, the goal will be to restore soft tissue and joint mobility, as well as improve your confidence and mental health in dealing with day-to-day pain.
