The Importance of Treating Pain Effectively:

Acute pain from recent injuries and other diseases can result in time off work, difficulty with participation in sports, and interfere with other normal day activities.

Persistent pain from chronic injuries, wear and tear, nerve pain, and other causes often results in frustration, low energy level, poor sleep (insomnia), irritability, depressed mood, difficulty with concentration and memory, mobility problems and even reduced sexual function. Relationships with friends and family, work, personal happiness and life in general may also be affected. Pain has even been associated with loss of brain mass.

By properly treating persistent pain, patients will be able to enjoy work, sports, and life in general more effectively. Sleep will also become more restful, resulting in more energetic days and better moods.

More importantly, pain and its underlying cause must be properly treated to prevent it from getting worse, and deteriorating to the point where surgery and other invasive treatments become necessary.

If you are unsure of the cause for the aches, pain or stiffness you are suffering from, or if your condition has not improved despite standard treatments and have been told to consider surgery, do not worry.
