Oklahoma Pain Treatment Centers Reveals 5 Myths About Chronic Pain: Part 3
In part one and part two of this blog series, our Oklahoma Pain Treatment Centers team has revealed a total of two out of five myths surrounding chronic pain and the thoughts people often have about those suffering from something no one can physically see. Today, we’re going to reveal the third most common myth.
Chronic Pain Myth #3: Making healthier choices will cure chronic pain.
It’s easy to become swept up in the belief that exercising will be a miracle cure for you if you suffer from chronic pain, but this is not the case. There are many circumstances where exercising too strenuously can actually cause more problems. There are also several, gentle alternative therapies like yoga, massage therapy, and incorporating an anti-inflammatory diet. Unfortunately, while these methods can help, they don’t actually get to the root problem.
The Truth: It’s important to consult with someone like Dr. Christensen at Oklahoma Pain Treatment Centers to find the proper treatment plan, which oftentimes starts with a proper diagnosis. Chronic pain is commonly caused by a car accident injury, auto-immune disease, aging, and other medical conditions. It’s important to determine where the problem started in order to better treat the pain. Remember, while a healthy lifestyle won’t make matters worse, it is unlikely that it will cure your pain.
