Many treatments: Chronic pain is an excellent example of a condition that benefits from a holistic approach. Treatment depends on the cause of the pain. Options include medications, physical therapy, osteopathic/chiropractic manipulation, acupuncture, homeopathy, herbal medicines, nutritional supplements, frequency specific microcurrent/tens units/other electromagnetic treatments, prolozone etc.Please see comments:.

Not an easy question: Chronic pain can arise from many sources. The best way to find out is to see your physician. Often other chronic diseases like diabetes, vascular diseases, etc can be the cause. Dont wait-get checked! delays may prolong the pain.

Yes/No: There are tons of chronic pain medicines and remedys. If you have chronic pain which is interfering with your quality of living and ability to function it is no a good idea to grab something off the shelf. Chronic pain is so much more complicated that an otc drug. You should not try to treat this yourself, but consult a pain management professional. Preferrable a member of aapm or abipp.
