Overcome Chronic Pain...For Good
We’ve helped many people just like you stop their chronic pain at it’s source.
We at the Carolina Center for Functional Medicine have experienced firsthand the frustration that goes along with having chronic pain. Many people have come to believe that their pain is “normal.” They think that having daily back or joint pain, fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, GI pain, and migraine headaches are just a part of life; unavoidable and inevitable circumstances that arise as we age. Others that we work with believe their condition was acquired as a result of being dealt a bad genetic hand.
Why have people come to this conclusion? It is what our society has taught them. Friends, family, and TV commercials all tell us that “Getting old isn’t easy.”
We need to stop thinking of chronic pain, migraine headaches, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid and osteoarthritis as diagnoses or conditions, and begin to see them for what they really are… symptoms. They are symptoms of some underlying imbalance within the systems of our body. Identify the imbalance, and you identify the solution.
The cause of an individual’s chronic pain is often complex. It can come from things such as:
- The body’s inflammatory reaction to toxins in the environment
- Food sensitivities that cause inflammation
- Nutrient deficiencies and imbalances
- Altered biomechanics involving joints, tissues, and nerves
- The destructive physiologic effects of prolonged stress and trauma
The truth is that chronic pain of most often some combination of the causes listed above. Treatment, therefore must address every aspect of the condition to achieve optimal results.
