What is Chronic Pain?

Chronic pain is caused by inflammation or nerve problems. The primary symptom is persistent pain that lasts weeks to years.

Pain exists to tell us when something is wrong, but you may be experiencing pain that continues long after you believe the problem is gone. If you're feeling chronic pain, you know that it takes a toll on your physical and emotional health.

If chronic pain persists, you may begin to experience chronic pain syndrome (CPS) which can include more symptoms such as depression, anxiety, irritability, fatigue, joint pain, muscle spasms or aches, insomnia, and loss of stamina and flexibility.

Chronic pain syndrome is often first caused by an injury or painful condition like:

You may also have chronic pain from a sprain or strain, car accident or other personal injury, long-term poor posture, or another ongoing illness. In some cases, there is no clear cause for chronic pain.

Chronic pain can also refer to other parts of your body, such as your leg, ankle, or foot, elbow, head, knee, back, neck, hips, glutes, shoulder, or any other joint or muscle.

Absolutely love this place! My husband and I have been going here for a while, and every time they remember us. We never have to re-explain anything. From the front desk to the medical team and chiropractors, they genuinely care. I’ve been having issues with my back and knee for as long as I can remember, and they helped make me feel better then I ever have. It's hard to find businesses that are run like BackFit. They have what is best for you at heart. Thanks for making my husband and I feel better then we’ve felt in years!

I would highly recommend BackFit. The staff and doctors are wonderful and my treatment has been very successful. My migraine headaches and sciatic nerve pain are completely gone. I have significantly less lower back pain and much more range of motion despite the fact that the disc in my back was very damaged. I can now go about my daily living without health issues getting in the way.

Great adjustments. Friendly staff too. Good therapists for exercising and stretching before I get adjusted. Been going for 4 years, totally love coming to get adjusted. Not scary at all. I had severe lower back pain and spasms. When I go for a routine adjustment it keeps from back pain occurring and my back spasming.

Going to BackFit was one of the best decisions I've made. I couldn't get out of bed because of severe back pain. I called BackFit and they were able to see me that day. They took x-rays in office. Loved that I didn't have to go anywhere else. Went back a couple days later to go over x-ray results with the chiropractor and started working on a solution, also with their in-house physician assistant and physical therapist. Not only have they been able to relieve the pain in my back but they have worked on other kinks in my body. Oh, and they also helped me lose weight. What more can I say, the people are amazing and the results are amazing! If anything in your body hurts, go to BackFit!

I look forward and enjoy every visit in my road to back recovery. The staff is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and welcoming. I will no longer be looking for another chiropractor office to meet my back needs. I also like the fact they provide other health needs.

I was a little weary at first, but man even in the first two weeks they are really making a difference in my health! I felt the difference just after my first visit! I am committed to coming back and staying consistently. I actually recommend!
