Many people believe that acute and chronic pain is an inevitable part of life – or they make the mistake of assuming their aches and pains will go away on their own. This unfortunate assumption can prove detrimental, leading to even more pain and discomfort.
Numbness or tingling: If you feel any numbness or tingling, this is a sign that you should visit a pain specialist. Numbness and tingling can be indicators of serious conditions such as compressed or “pinched” nerves caused by misaligned vertebrae or herniated discs.
Severe, persistent pain: If you notice that your aches and pains are getting worse, this could mean that your condition is becoming more severe. If this is the case, you should visit a pain specialist as soon as possible. A pain specialist will be able to diagnose your condition and give you the treatment you need to ensure that your pain does not get any worse.
Pain after an accident: After minor car accidents or mishaps around the house, many individuals choose to forego pain management because injuries are not immediately apparent. However, even minor accidents can lead to whiplash, headaches and back problems. If you have recently been in an accident, regardless of how minor it is, consult a pain specialist as soon as possible.
If you or someone you love suffers from pain it is important to get help. There are many effective forms of pain treatment available to relieve discomfort so that you or your loved one can start living again.
