There is a growing body of pain therapists and modalities to help alleviate and in many cases eliminate chronic pain. Pain results from tissue injury, and treatment is aimed at targeting the tissue involved and the nature of the injury. All pain has commonalities with other types of pain in terms of pain pathways, neuroreceptors, neurotransmitters and central brain chemistry changes in response to chronic pain. Scientists and pain specialists continue to increase their understanding of the complexity of the pain mystery. This enables them to make treatment plans to help manage your specific pain with greater success.
