Persistent Pain

November 9th, 2018

Chronic pain is defined as persistent pain that last for weeks, months or even years.  For some, chronic pain is the result of an injury, like a sprained back, or an ongoing problem like arthritis.  For others, chronic pain occurs in the absence of a past injury.

A 2011 Global Industry Analysts, Inc. report estimates that over 1.5 billion people worldwide suffer from chronic pain, with the incidence rate increasing with age.  Most chronic pain conditions affect older adults. Common chronic pain complaints include headache, low back pain, arthritis pain, or neurogenic pain (pain resulting from damage to the peripheral nerves or to the central nervous system itself).

At HealthQuest Physical Therapy, we are dedicated to overcoming these disabling disorders so our patients can get back to the life they love. We focus on two key elements in treating pain: education and movement. The combination of therapeutic neuroscience education (TNE) and movement has shown significant evidence in helping people with persistent pain.
