Chronic Pain Treatment

In 2018, about 3.24 million Australians suffered from chronic pain – about 1.50 million are men (46.2%) and 1.74 million are women (53.8%). Even 2.21 million (68.3%) are of working age. For the majority of those people, their chronic pain restricts which activities they’re able to undertake.

Although there is a wide variety of prescribed and over-the-counter (OTC) medications for chronic pain, a growing number of people prefer natural painkillers. Acting as a safe pain reliever, medical cannabis can help pain sufferers manage chronic pain and improve the quality of their life without causing serious side effects.

Chronic pain is the result of conditions like multiple sclerosis, trauma, cancer, arthritis, etc. Whatever the cause, our treatment can help you get rid of pain naturally. It can also be combined with opioid therapy because it interacts with entirely independent cannabinoid receptors in the human body.

What Is Chronic Pain?

Pain that lasts more than 3 months is considered to be chronic pain. Unlike acute pain, chronic pain can last beyond the expected recovery period following trauma, surgery, or medical condition. When persisting for an extended period of time, pain negatively affects day-to-day activities and life. In the event of an injury, pain sensors send signals from nerve fibers to the brain letting it know you are hurt. Even if you have healed, those sensors do not stop when it comes to chronic pain due to nerve damage.

Causes & Symptoms of Chronic Pain

It should be pointed out that chronic pain is not always the result of an injury. In addition to the damage to the body, it can also occur from health issues and conditions, such as:

  • Endometriosis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Headaches/migraines
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Arthritis
  • Cancer

Apart from these health conditions, chronic pain can also be associated with nerve damage (neurogenic pain), surgery, and post-trauma. Listed below are the most common symptoms:

  • Aching
  • Stiffness
  • Stinging
  • Throbbing
  • Burning
  • Shooting pain

How We Can Help Relieve Chronic Pain

Cannabis has gained particular popularity with chronic pain sufferers. There is a good reason for this. Aside from relieving pain, this natural relaxant can also improve overall health and boost productivity.

If a nerve or tissue is damaged, the sensory receptors send a “message” to the brain about the injury, allowing it to soothe the pain in the injured area. People with chronic pain often have imbalanced or low serotonin levels. This is especially true for those suffering from arthritis or cancer. Serotonin plays an important role in well-being and is associated with things like fatigue, depression, anxiety, and pain. Our treatment can regulate body functions and reduce these symptoms by increasing serotonin levels in a natural way.
