Chronic Pain

Chronic Pain

Chiropractor in Pensacola


At Stern Chiropractic Clinic in Pensacola, we define chronic pain as an unpleasant, recurring sensation such as aching, burning, or throbbing that lasts for at least six months. If left unaddressed, chronic pain can persist for years. Chronic pain differs from acute pain due to its prolonged nature.


Who Suffers From Chronic Pain?

Adults are more likely to develop chronic pain as they age. Chronic pain is much more common in the elderly than in young adults and children. However, people dealing with cancer and other chronic illnesses may also suffer from chronic pain. Poor workplace ergonomics can also contribute to chronic pain, as can traumatic injuries. Rather than relying on prescription medication or invasive surgery, chiropractic care treats chronic pain at its source.

Chronic Pain Examples: Headaches , Migraines, Back Pain, & Arthritis

Chronic Pain From Spine Conditions: Herniated discs, Kyphosis, Sciatica, & Spondylosis 

Types of Chronic Pain:

Neuropathic Pain, which results from damaged nerves.

Nociceptive Pain, which is nerve receptor pain.

Chiropractic Care for Chronic Pain

Dr. Stern will begin by performing a comprehensive examination of your musculoskeletal system to determine the underlying cause of your chronic pain. Our chiropractor will use this information to create a chiropractic care plan tailored to your needs.

Depending on the condition of your body, chiropractic adjustments will be performed accordingly. Our chiropractor will work to align your spine, neck, and other problematic areas. This not only provides immediate pain relief, but also improves circulation, improves range of motion, and enhances the body’s natural healing process.

At Stern Chiropractic Clinic in Pensacola, we understand the debilitating nature of chronic pain. Dr. Stern, Dr. Heifner, and the rest of our staff are dedicated to helping relieve you or your family member’s chronic pain, no matter the stage or severity.
