Chronic Pain

CHRONIC PAIN

Westside Wellness Center is dedicated to finding what gets you well and keeps you well. We have been specializing in the care of chronic pain for many years. Treating chronic pain is more difficult because many other systems in the body are usually involved.

For example: Some people with chronic pain have food allergies and poor digestion and therefore poor absorption. So, all muscles are not getting the proper nutrients they need to function and the waste products of muscle metabolism are not being eliminated. This can be true for all organic dysfunction.

Other examples:
Adrenal fatigue, hypo thyroid, irritable bowel syndrome, fibromyalgia, muscle cramping, osteoporosis, weakness and anemia. In anemia cases the muscles and other tissues are not getting the oxygen they need to function and when you have lower oxygen you have pain. Simplest example of this.

Hold a 5 pound object with your arm at shoulder height and it wont take you long to feel pain. Why? The muscle is not moving and blood flow is restricted. Restricted blow flow, restricted oxygen transport and waste removal. And this is just the tip of the iceberg.
