Physical Therapy and Pain (Part Deux)

Physical Therapy and Pain (Part Deux)

I know that talking about addiction to pain medication is all the rage these days. There is a reason for that: people are dying. In fact, people close to me have had their lives changed dramatically because of opioid abuse and addiction.  I urge you to share the information below with as many people as possible. People need to know that pills and shots and patches aren’t the only way.

The medical community knows how pain can limit your ability to do things. (If you suffer from chronic pain, I am sure you do too!) Research continues to look at what can be done to treat it safely. Pain is complicated.  You might be surprised to learn that things like mood and environment and diet can affect how much and what kind of pain you experience.

Because so many things affect how intensely we feel pain, it just makes sense that there are a lot of things that affect the improvement of it.

If you use pain medication, you know that it can briefly relieve pain. In exchange for this short term fix, drowsiness, nausea, difficulty sleeping, poor concentration, and constipation are some of the unintended side effects many people experience.  Over time (and not a long time either, I might add), decreased efficacy, impaired decision making and addiction become real risks for you.

I don’t mean to imply that you should NEVER use pain medication. It has its purpose, and in some circumstances, it does a fine job.

What you need to understand is that pain medication isn’t a solution on its own. When you have an injury that prevents normal movement and function, your body will do whatever it can to compensate for that lost function and protect itself from further pain. That is completely normal and expected.

Physical therapy can restore movement and function that lasts longer than a few hours. We can give you tools to help your body learn how to gradually work up to levels that are at or near where you were before your injury.

During your assessments, our physical therapists can help identify ways that you can help yourself. and We can also help you see ways that you are inhibiting yourself. Each time you come in for physical therapy, our staff will ask you how or if things are better since your last visit. This is so that our recommendations are specific and adjusted to your needs. Some of our patients have seen noticeable improvement in less than two weeks. Your journey may be shorter or longer than that.

The journey is one worth taking. You can choose, today, to start this one. It will be worthwhile. Get in touch with us and schedule your first appointment: https://physicaltherapytucson.com/contact-us/

    Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just
    sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly
    enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing.
    Do you have any suggestions for novice blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.

    Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  41. What Equipment is Needed for Sling TV November 14, 2018 at 12:01 am

    Its like you read my thoughts! You appear to understand a lot about this,
    such as you wrote the e-book in it or something.
    I think that you simply could do with a few p.c. to power the message home a bit,
    but instead of that, this is fantastic blog. A great read.

    I’ll definitely be back.

    like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind
    prior to writing. I’ve had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out
    how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Thanks!
