Pain comes from inflammation. When the pain persists it means that there is still an inflammatory response going on. Inflammation brings with it different degrees of swelling, redness and/or tenderness.
If the body continues to produce inflammation after healing has run its course pain can persist. This type of pain, when experienced for greater than 6 months, is called chronic pain. Chronic inflammation, which gives chronic pain, can progress to increased tissue damage over time. The areas of your body that are most susceptible for becoming painful are those that are weak or already damaged. At Patterson Physical Therapy & Wellness Center we are committed to finding and eliminating the source(s) of your pain whether they are biomechanical (nerve and muscles and bones) or nutritional or postural.
