There are so many reasons why someone could be living with chronic pain. No matter the cause of their discomfort, Champlain is here to help with the highest-quality care and procedures for pain conditions.
If you have been diagnosed with cancer, controlling cancer-related pain should be part of your overall treatment plan. As tumors grow or spread, it is possible that they will compress or alter certain parts of your body. These changes can result in pain that may not be able to be easily identified and treated. This means it is exceptionally important for patients with cancer pain to work with a qualified team that understands their unique needs.
Chronic Muscle Pain
Some individuals may experience chronic muscle pain even if they cannot identify a reason for their discomfort, such as a long day out in a theme park or a particularly intense workout. Some people will get a diagnosis of fibromyalgia or myofascial pain as a result of their symptoms. While the cause of these conditions isn’t well understood, there are many available treatments designed to manage chronic muscle pain.
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is marked by a patient feeling much greater pain than their injury or condition is usually associated with. While CRPS is not well understood, many professionals take it to be a type of “overreaction” of the nervous system. Thankfully, there are many treatments available to help control this condition and alleviate the pain a patient with CRPS is feeling.
Fibromyalgia is another condition that is not well understood. It is marked by muscle pain and tenderness that is typically felt across the entire body. Many patients with fibromyalgia experience constant fatigue, memory problems, and mood swings associated with their discomfort.
Myofascial Pain Syndrome
This chronic pain disorder is unique because certain body parts become sensitive to the touch, but the pain manifests in an unrelated body part. Though this condition is not well understood, there are many treatments available to help decrease your discomfort.
Peripheral neuritis refers to the discomfort, numbness, or tingling associated with nerve damage. Most specifically, damage to the nerves outside of the brain and spinal cord can result in weakness to the peripheral parts of the body, namely the hands and feet. This condition is often chronic, but there are a number of treatments available to treat underlying causes and manage your symptoms.
Phantom Limb Pain
Phantom limb pain refers to a condition where a person who has had a limb amputated will feel pain coming from that limb. Though this condition is most common when a person has had an arm or leg amputated, women who have had mastectomies can also experience phantom limb pain. Thankfully, there are a number of treatments available that can help your brain adjust to the loss of a limb and control phantom limb pain.
After a surgical procedure, it is normal to experience some pain or discomfort while you are going through the healing process. Some people, however, experience heightened pain or pain that does not go away following the appropriate healing time. In those cases, there are a number of treatments available to provide better pain management.
Men, women, teens, and children who play sports often find themselves in better health than those with more sedentary lifestyles. Despite this, athletes are more prone to sports injuries that can affect any part of their body. Depending on their sport, or exercise, of choice, athletes can be more prone to upper body, neck, back, or lower extremity injuries that require professional care to recover from.
