Injuries and illness are normally accompanied by pain, but once you heal from the ailment it is normal for that pain to go away. In the case of chronic pain, the pain may have originally been caused by an illness or injury, but it carries on for months after the original cause heals. Chronic pain can begin with conditions such as arthritis, Lyme disease, cancer, IBS, Endometriosis, surgery, broken bones and many more, but doctors are still unsure what exactly causes it.
How does Chronic Pain affect a person?
The condition can leave people suffering from pains, such as wrist pain or elbow pain, on a daily basis. Due to the consistent nature of the pain, finding an effective pain relief can be tough, leading many sufferers to feel an emotional toll too. Medical statistics have shown that 25% of those suffering with chronic pain will develop Chronic Pain Syndrome (CPS), that comes with added symptoms such as depression and anxiety. Just like the physical pain, the mental and emotional pain can be hard to treat, and the best course of action is usually a mixture of counselling and physical therapy.
How Chronic Pain can impact someone’s daily life
Chronic pain can affect each and every daily activity that you once took for granted, including even the most mundane of tasks. Pre-planning is a huge part of living with chronic pain, as you have to pace out your tasks so as not to become exhausted. Each activity, even popping to the shops, may have to be followed by a break – especially on days where the pain is especially bad. It can also be common for chronic pain sufferers to struggle to carry things such as shopping bags, often relying on the good-willed staff to help get the bags to the car.
What is the solution?
Physical therapy, pain medicines and anti-depressants are all common treatments prescribed to chronic pain patients. However, as you experience pain so often and don’t know when it will end, many patients are uncomfortable with the thought of taking painkillers for such a long stretch of time. Pain-relieving sprays, lotions and gels can also become a great expense when you are relying on them every day. QTECH® pain technology is an alternative solution and a one-time expense. QTECH bands use a pure shocked Supa-Quartz crystal powder embedded into the bracelet to interrupt pain signals and switch off your persistent pain.
