Chronic pain can be frustrating and disabling, preventing you from enjoying your favorite activities. In some cases, this pain may be due to an underlying medical condition that may continue progressing if not detected early. If you are looking for long-term relief from chronic pain, the New Rochelle chronic pain specialists at NY FITPROS HEALTH AND FITNESS CENTER should be your ultimate choice.
What are the available pain management techniques for chronic pain?
Chronic pain has no cure, but several techniques can alleviate your pain and prevent it from worsening. For instance, your health care provider may recommend medical exercise, a physical activity closely monitored by a satisfied professional. Medical exercise is a complex program that requires vigorous training and medical knowledge to create an exercise plan that addresses the underlying cause of your pain safely. The professional team at NY FITPROS HEALTH AND FITNESS CENTER uses personalized approaches to achieve maximum results. The specialists first perform a thorough physical evaluation to determine the cause of your pain before recommending an exercise program. Your exercise program may also include the following components:
- Medical weight loss
- Post-rehab training
- Meditation and mindfulness
- Lifestyle coaching
- Nutrition and diet coaching
- Massage therapy
- Self-care habits
Your treatment program and its modalities may also depend on the type and intensity of your pain. The team may give the necessary instructions on the intensity and frequency for engaging in your exercise to ensure it is effective and safe. Whether your pain is due to underlying medical conditions like fibromyalgia or recurring injuries, the NY FITPROS professionals have your back.
What happens during a chronic pain evaluation?
During your appointment at NY FITPROS, the team does a thorough examination and evaluates your symptoms before recommending the appropriate medical fitness program. The team understands that your body and your needs are unique; hence they offer personalized medical programs to address your unique concerns. During your evaluation, your provider may conduct:
- FIT3D Analyzer
- Diet and nutrition assessment
- Smart Start Assessment
- Brain Gauge Cognitive Assessment
Your provider uses the information from your evaluation to design an aerobic-conditioning program that addresses your needs.
Do prescribed medications relieve chronic pain?
Chronic pain is more common in older people, but it can affect anyone regardless of their age. Although prescribed medications are usually perceived as the most appropriate treatment for chronic pain, they are not, and they can cause potentially dangerous side effects. For instance, prescription drugs such as opioids are highly addictive and cause unfriendly side effects. They only address the symptoms and not the underlying cause of the pain. Prescription drugs gradually lose their effectiveness, and because overdoses can result in death, specialists rarely prescribe them. Other medications like aspirin and ibuprofen are effective, but they cause long-term side effects like gastrointestinal distress. Unlike these medications, medical exercise stimulates your body’s healing powers by triggering the release of endorphins. Regular exercise also prevents mood swings, regulates blood sugar, and prevents heart disease.
