Any injury to the skin, nerves, joints or spine can lead to chronic pain that prevents you from doing the things you want to do or need to do. Millions of people suffer from chronic pain due to conditions like arthritis, degenerative disc disease (DDD), sciatica and Fibromyalgia that arise without a sudden shock or injury. When pain and uncomfortable nerve sensations keep you awake at night or make it hard to spend time with your family, it is time for a change. . Back 2 Health Physical Medicine provides numerous pain management options and alternatives to risky and addictive pain medications.
Common Causes of Chronic or Episodic Pain
While there are thousands of potential causes behind each case of chronic pain and inflammation, some of the most common problems we treat include:
- Nerve damage, also known as neuropathy, caused by diseases like diabetes or injury Spinal injury or compression
- Pinched nerves
- Degeneration due to age, lifestyle, or secondary illness Hereditary problems like lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and scoliosis
- Car accidents and sports injuries
Many people come in for pain management after years of hard work on construction sites. Traumatic injuries are also common, especially among individuals that had a bad fall years ago and have been dealing with the pain since.
Finding The Cause
The most common approach for pain management involves prescription painkillers. However, these medications are not without their risks. Many options are addictive or prevent the patient from driving or performing properly at work. They can disrupt a life just as much as the original chronic pain. While painkillers cover up the symptoms, they will not solve the injury or illness triggering the inflammation. Hunting down the compressed nerve or the food allergy behind your symptoms can help you put an end to the problem rather than requiring you to treat it for the rest of your life. Our Goose Creek office can help you enjoy less irritation and pain on a daily basis.
For pain caused by a chronic condition that can not be resolved, we believe it is best to support the patient with comprehensive treatment plans. Back 2 Health Physical Medicine combines multiple forms of therapy to create pain relief in the office, then we support these efforts by recommending lifestyle changes.

Weekly or monthly treatments may relieve your pain without requiring you to deal with the side effects of medications or the risks of surgery.
