Chronic Pain Q & A

Chronic Pain

What causes chronic pain?

Chronic pain has numerous causes, and more than one factor can contribute. Some of the most common chronic pain generators are:

  • Arthritis
  • Tendon injuries
  • Ligament injuries
  • Cartilage injuries
  • Disc degeneration and injuries
  • Joint injuries
  • Nerve damage and nerve pain syndromes 

Lyme disease, another source of chronic pain, often starts with a rash, fatigue, headaches, and fever. Without antibiotic treatment, Lyme disease progresses to Lyme arthritis a cause of serious joint pain in about 6 in 10 patients. 

Many people with late-stage Lyme disease also experience nerve, bone, tendon, and muscle pain. 

How is chronic pain evaluated?

The OWM Integrative Wellness team understands that you want a solution for chronic pain instead of a quick fix.

Many people searching for a chronic pain solution feel trapped in a frustrating cycle of taking medications that only work for a few hours at a time — and, often, the medications lose effectiveness over time. 

To break that frustrating cycle, the OWM Integrative Wellness team looks for the true root cause of your chronic pain. They perform extensive testing, a detailed medical history review, and a complete evaluation of your lifestyle and habits.

Many people with chronic pain also experience problems like fatigue, confusion, and sleep issues — which are usually interconnected. One or more surprising factors are often involved in your chronic pain; examples include heavy metal toxicity, mold toxicity, hormone imbalance, and gut dysfunction.

Your comprehensive evaluation at OWM Integrative Wellness can connect all of your symptoms and determine exactly why they happen.
