4 Common Causes of Chronic Pain

By Gladiator Therapeutics

Currently, it’s estimated that 1 in 5 people suffer from a form of chronic pain. That’s about 1.5 billion people, and yet it probably doesn’t feel like it. Unfortunately, chronic pain is typically “invisible” and has become a regular part of life for those dealing with it. Many have become used to the pain, or skilled in hiding it. This shouldn’t be the solution. We should be able to treat chronic pain, and that’s where the healing devices at Gladiator Therapeutics can help.

The Issue of Chronic Pain

Chronic pain is a growing problem in today’s society, but what is it? It is defined as any persistent or recurring pain that lasts for more than three months, and it can significantly impact the quality of life for those who experience it. There are many conditions that last for a lifetime if not treated.

There are several different causes of chronic pain too, meaning there is no one-size-fix-all solution. Understanding them can help people find relief and improve their overall well-being.

Causes of Chronic Pain

Chronic pain can have numerous underlying causes, ranging from sudden accidents to long-gestating medical conditions. Some of the most common ones include:

#1. Physical Injuries

Injuries such as fractures, sprains, and strains can lead to chronic pain if not treated properly. These injuries can cause inflammation or nerve damage that can result in long-term pain. These can be sustained in a number of ways, too numerous to list.

#2. Medical Conditions

Certain medical conditions can also be responsible for chronic pain. These can include conditions we develop over time and even some that we are born with. Some examples include arthritis, fibromyalgia, and multiple sclerosis.

#3. Post-Surgical Pain

Pain can persist after surgery, even after the initial healing process. This is known as post-surgical pain and can be caused by scar tissue, nerve damage, or other complications that come during surgery.

#4. Lifestyle Factors

Lifestyle factors such as poor posture, repetitive motions, and lack of physical activity can also contribute to chronic pain. These habits can put a strain on the body and lead to musculoskeletal pain. Being sure to exercise and taking time to stand throughout the day can help alleviate the chances of developing chronic pain or pain-causing conditions.

How Healing Devices Can Help

The healing devices offered by Gladiator Therapeutics can relieve chronic pain in various ways. These products use our innovative Far Infrared technology to promote healing and alleviate discomfort. Here are some examples of how they can help:

  • Reducing Inflammation: Our healing devices use infrared technology to penetrate deep into the tissues and reduce inflammation, which can be a significant source of pain.
  • Stimulating Tissue Repair: Our devices stimulate cell regeneration and promote tissue repair, helping the body heal from injuries or surgeries faster.
  • Improving Circulation: Poor circulation can contribute to chronic pain. Our healing devices can improve blood flow, bringing essential nutrients and oxygen to the affected areas.

Ways to Avoid Chronic Pain

While healing devices can provide relief for chronic pain, it is always better to prevent it from occurring in the first place. Here are some ways you can help yourself avoid chronic pain:

  • Maintaining good posture: Poor posture can put stress on the body and lead to musculoskeletal pain. Practicing proper posture can help prevent this.
  • Exercise regularly: Regular physical activity can strengthen muscles and joints, reducing the risk of injury and chronic pain from conditions like arthritis.
  • Take breaks from repetitive tasks: If your job or hobbies involve repetitive motions, frequent breaks can give your body a chance to rest and prevent strain. Even if all you do is sit at a computer, standing and stretching now and then will help your muscles and skeletal system.
