Learning to Live with Chronic Pain

Chronic pain is a brutal reality

Defined broadly as pain that lasts for more than three months, chronic pain can come to define a person’s entire life, especially in old age. The daily battle against symptoms can take all the willpower and determination an individual can muster just to survive the day. The pain becomes a permanent fixture in life- stemming from conditions that we can identify but that have no definitive treatment. At Dr. Randall Holmes Chiropractic, we specialize in helping people find a way to live happily despite musculoskeletal disorders that cause chronic pain, conditions like:

  • Spinal stenosis
  • Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis
  • Degenerative disc disease

These are serious spinal conditions that often appear with age, as the natural degenerative process finally starts to get the better of our spines. Managing chronic pain requires coming to grips with the reality of your condition and a dedicated, individualized treatment plan that seeks to help you live better despite it.

Living better despite your chronic pain

Once you have an accurate diagnosis of your chronic pain, you are going to need all the help you can get in overcoming it. That’s why many people look to combine conservative healthcare like chiropractic with their primary care- it gives them an extra dimension in the fight for their lives against chronic pain. Chiropractic treatment is all-natural and offers people with chronic pain the chance to live a freer, more mobile life with less pain. At our office in Houston, we use modalities including:

  • Spinal adjustment
  • Strengthening and stretching
  • Soft tissue work

All of these modalities are designed to help increase the mobility of your spinal joints, alleviate tension in the musculature and help you move better so that you can get out and exercise- one of the only defenses you have against your pain.
