Because the kind of pain, as well as its severity, varies from one patient to another, a specific set of chronic pain management guidelines are followed in order to diagnose each patient. The treatment that is chosen and provided will be guided by the patient health history, including a comprehensive history of the pain, specifically its duration, intensity, recurrence, and that which aggravates and relieves it.

Having an adolescent with chronic pain poses some challenges that many parents may not be prepared for. But there are other conditions that can come about after the onset of the chronic pain, adding more to deal with than the original problem. As it turns out, teens who suffer from chronic pain may also be …

Researchers at the University of Queensland in Australia have successfully isolated seven peptides (mini-proteins) from the spiders’ venom, which they have found make for an effective pain killer. They believe these pain killers created from the spider venom don’t have as many side effects as do the current pain relief options on the market.
One look at a tarantula and many people would shriek. Truth be told, they may look intimidating, but they don’t actually pose a danger to humans. Their bite may be known for being painful, but it’s not harmful to our bodies beyond that initial pain. With over 850 species of tarantula worldwide, there is another …

This supports numerous prior research studies that have been conducted on the issue, including a 2010 study in the journal Anesthesiology. In that study, researchers reported that smoking produces profound changes in physiology, and that it is also a risk factor for chronic pain.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, smoking is leading cause of preventable death, killing nearly half a million people in the country each year. They also report that it causes immediate damage to your body (1), but what most people are not aware of is that it may also play a role …

The more “tools” they have at their disposal to help them manage the pain, the better. Different things appeal to and work for everyone, so the key is to knowing what options are available, and then finding the ones that work for each person.

What we are learning through repeated studies is that those who have resilient personalities tend to be more successful with their chronic pain management.
The millions of people who suffer from chronic pain know that they need as many effective options as they can find when it comes to finding some relief.
