Causes of acute and chronic pain

Musculoskeletal and connective tissue injuries like acute and chronic pain lead a large number of clinic visits per year. Causes of these injuries may be external (sports injuries, car accidents, trauma), internal (lasting wear and tear of muscles, ligaments and tendons; bones weakened by osteoporosis), or both. Acute injuries characterised by severe pain, swelling and inflammation, and in some cases, internal bleeding. Treatment of critical injuries should focus on relieving pain, reducing swelling and redness, and stopping the bleeding. Chronic wounds characterised by dull pain, stiffness and numbness, and decreased muscle mass and strength. Treatment of chronic injuries includes relief of pain and restoration of physical and physiological functions.

Pain killer medication is not the answer

Pain is a first bodily sensation induced by a noxious stimulus that causes physical discomfort. Pain may be acute and chronic. For severe pain, use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents (NSAID), and opioid analgesics offer immediate and reliable effects to relieve pain. Though these drugs have serious side effects, short-term use can be justified because the benefits often outweigh the risks. For chronic pain, on the other hand, use of NSAIDs and opioid analgesics are usually not the desired treatment options, as they symptomatically relieve pain, but do not change the underlying course of illness. Unfortunately, the convenience of these drugs contributes to the vicious cycle of pain, followed by continuous and repetitive use of drugs to symptomatically relieve pain. When the effect of the medicines dissipates, patients often left with nothing but more pain and more complications from side effects. Therefore, it is essential to understand that while these drugs may be beneficial for acute pain, they do not adequately address most cases of chronic pain. Additional treatment modalities must be incorporated to ensure adequate and complete recovery from chronic pain conditions.

Acupuncture offers quick and last pain relief

Treatment of chronic pain is a sophisticated balance of art and science. Proper treatment of depression requires a careful evaluation of the type of disharmony (excess or deficiency, cold or heat, exterior or interior), characteristics (qi and blood stagnation), and locations (upper body, lower body, extremities, or internal organs). Furthermore, optimal treatment requires integrative use of herbs, acupuncture, cupping and tui-na therapies. All these therapies work together to tonify the underlying deficiencies, strengthen the body, and facilitate recovery from chronic pain. Our acupuncture pain management targets both the symptom and the cause of pain, and as such, often achieves immediate and long-term success. Furthermore, TCM pain management often associated with few or no side effects.

In conclusion, for treatment of mild to severe pain due to various causes, TCM pain management offers similar treatment effects as Western medicine with significantly fewer side effects. Though TCM therapies may not be as potent as the drugs for acute pain management, they are often superior [better results with fewer side effects] for chronic pain management.
