Chronic Injuries

Chronic injuries, which are also called overuse injuries, are health problems that can develop slowly and last a long time.

If they're not treated promptly, they can cause a lifetime of pain, inflammation, and overall discomfort. Patients who participate in certain sports or exercises may be a risk of developing a chronic injury. Additionally, patients who overuse a particular body part may be in danger of developing chronic pain in the future. If that's the case, it's important for the patient to minimize the cumulative trauma that's occurring as quickly as possible. This may include resting the affected limb frequently, limiting the limb's range of motion, or receiving treatment for chronic pain and joint degeneration. At AFC Physical Medicine & Chiropractic Centers, our team can administer physical therapy, massage therapy, trigger point therapy, and chiropractic care to reduce pain in the affected joint or limb. Because these injuries are chronic, the patient may require many years of pain treatment to ensure partial or complete relief.
