According to data shown by the National Health Interview Survey more than 25 million Americans deal with chronic pain – meaning more than the preceding 3 months prior. What we want to look at is the different types of complexity and severity of this pain and provide you with an effective science-based approach to targeting the pain and improving your daily way of life with the Doctors of Physical Therapy at MyoFit Clinic.
Let’s discuss the background of muscle and joint pain;
Muscle pain is an overuse of a certain muscle. For chronic pain, this may be tensions and stress caused on your body which may not only be localized in certain areas of your body but also radiates to surrounding areas. Patients we have supported in the past may also include acute pain caused from illness as a side effect to limited to;
- Muscle cramps,
- Muscle sprains,
- Arthritis etc.
At MyoFit Clinic we want to focus on the symptoms of pain and locate what is the root cause. This leads us to review personal joint pain as well that may be more long term – or chronic. Millions of American’s deal with joint and too often suppressed with the use of pain management medications such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen. The conditions of painful joints are quite common from the daily stressful environments that we work in all the way to an older age. Conditions for joint pain include;
- Rheumatoid Arthritis,
- Strains and sprain injuries,
Since the pain can both be debilitating in our daily lives the Doctors at MyoFit Clinic hope to educate the public more on precautionary items and how we can exercise and stretch to care for our bodies to prevent long term chronic issues. As local Doctors of Physical Therapy we care for patients that have chronic joint and muscle problems, such as those seeking;
- Physical Therapist to alleviate chronic back pain,
- Physical Therapist to help manage chronic pain nearby,
- Reduction or elimination of pain by manual therapy techniques to mobilize and reduce pain.
Our hope is for patients to come into MyoFit Clinic seeking solutions. Avoid surgeries where possible and look at Physical Therapy as an option first before you seek surgery. We work closely with physicians across Ohio to best manage a care plan and determine the best care solutions, together.
