From stubbed toes to stomachaches, we all experience pain. In most cases this pain is temporary or acute, however, other times pain can persist for several weeks, months, or years. This is chronic pain. Its longevity, cause, location, and circumstances all contribute to how providers treat that pain and help you live the healthiest life possible. 

Acute Pain

Acute pain is the most common type of pain and is usually associated with common illnesses or injuries like cuts and sprains or trauma from a severe accident or major surgery. Acute pain occurs suddenly and usually goes away as you heal. 

Minor acute pain can be easily treated through over-the-counter medicines such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen, physical therapy or exercise, or alternative treatments. Acute pain from trauma or major surgery may require stronger medicines or more intensive therapies. 

If not appropriately treated, acute pain can turn into chronic pain.

Chronic Pain

If your pain lasts more than three months, it is considered chronic or persistent pain, and you may require help from your provider to understand the cause and determine treatment. 

We estimate that nearly one of every four adults in the United States suffers from chronic pain. At Salson Clinics we rely providers, expert specialist, and a balanced, interdisciplinary approach to treating both the physical effects of chronic pain:

  • Understand the Cause: A variety of syndromes and conditions can cause chronic pain. It is essential to identify the root of the pain, as well as managing the pain itself. Different conditions require different types of treatment – what may work well for a migraine may aggravate an inflamed colon.
  • Involve the Patient: We include patients in their own pain management process, asking them to set goals, contribute to planning, and track their progress as chronic pain is experienced differently by each of us.
  • Treat the Pain and Other Symptoms: While medicines are useful tools in providing relief, they should not be the only part of the chronic pain treatment equation. This is especially true when considering strong substances such as opioids, which can cause addiction and other serious side effects. Your primary care provider may also recommend physical therapy, massage, anti-inflammatory medicines and exercise, medication and relaxation practices, and working with a behavioral health professional to help with self-regulation of the pain symptoms.
  • Monitor Results and Follow-up: You can expect regular follow-up appointments with your primary care provider to manage your progress, make changes to your treatment plan, and support your recovery.

You can still live a happy productive life with chronic pain; talk to your provider to consider other options to help with chronic pain symptoms.

Over five million people in the United States are affected by fibromyalgia, making it one of the most common chronic pain conditions in the country. The most common side effect of this disorder is joint pain, but it can also cause chronic fatigue, memory loss, mood swings, and insufficient sleep. Despite the prevalence of the condition, it can be incredibly challenging to diagnose. In fact, because of the similarities in symptoms, many doctors often misdiagnose lipedema as fibromyalgia and inadvertently put their patients on the incorrect treatment plan, which only prolongs their discomfort.

When your knees hurt you just want relief from the pain.

The fluid (synovial fluid) in your knee helps to lubricate and cushion the joint during movement. The major component in the synovial fluid is hyaluronic acid, the equivalent active component of GenVisc 850. One of the early effects of OA is to break down this fluid, making it less effective. It is thought that GenVisc 850 helps restore the synovial fluid to a more healthy state, thereby reducing the pain of OA.
