Looking For a Doctor To Help With Chronic Pain?
The Root Causes of Chronic Pain:
Chronic pain can be complex and is often misdiagnosed, as it’s interrelated to several possible underlying causes. This includes trauma, injuries, poor posture, or obesity.
If you don’t have any history of injury or trauma, and you still have chronic pain, it’s possible your chronic pain is a result of chronic inflammation. Chronic Inflammation happens when your body begins attacking itself by sending an inflammatory response even when there is no outside danger. This can be the early stages of an autoimmune condition such as Rheumatoid Arthritis. It’s critical to deal with underlying inflammation. If it continues to go unresolved, inflammation can continue to advance into more significant autoimmune conditions.
Treating Chronic Pain:
As functional medicine practitioners, our primary role in treating chronic pain is to help you treat the underlying inflammation that causes pain flare-ups.
Inflammation has a number of causes, including:
- Poor diet with processed foods
- Allergies / Food Sensitivities
- Digestive Infections
- Toxicity (Heavy Metals, etc.)
When you work with a functional medicine doctor at Wisdom, your doctor will run a set of advanced lab tests to help you determine the underlying cause of inflammation. You’ll get personal care from your doctor throughout the year, and you’ll also have full access to our Foundations of Integrative Healing course, which will train you to rebuild your health from the ground up.
