Do you have dull aching pain or throbbing pain? That’s called nociceptive pain, and it typically occurs due to damage to muscles, bones, and joints (such as a muscle strain).
Some people may try to “tough it out” when they experience nociceptive pain, and it does sometimes resolve on its own. However, an untreated injury could lead to complications and raise the risk of developing a chronic condition.
If you’re experiencing pain due to an injury, we encourage you to contact us. Early treatment is the most effective way to prevent injury-related pain from becoming chronic pain. Call Integrated Pain Solutions today: (614) 383-6450.
Nociceptive pain may occur due to injury or because of degenerative disorders such as:
Obesity, cigarette-smoking, and poor nutrition may make nociceptive pain worse or interfere with the healing process.
Treatment options depend primarily upon the source of and intensity of pain. At our clinic, we start with the most conservative treatments and move on to advanced procedures as needed. We may recommend specific exercises and stretches, as well as injections that target painful areas.
