You may be wondering why you STILL have pain after surgery, after physical therapy, or after a number of other treatments.
You may have seen multiple doctors and practitioners, but you STILL have pain.
You may have been told that there’s nothing you can do.
Pain is a very complex phenomenon. In Understanding Pain and Why You May STILL Hurt, Indianapolis-based physical therapist Bill Hartman takes this complex topic and simplifies it to a level that we can all understand. You will find that many of the things you have been told about why you have pain may simply not be true.
Do you have back pain?
Have you been told that your back pain is being caused by disc degeneration or herniated disc?
Did you know that 80% of people over 50 were found to have disc degeneration and 36% had disc protrusions BUT NO PAIN?! (Brinjikji, W. et al. Am J Neuroradiol, 2014)
Have you had surgery for a meniscus tear in your knee but you still have a painful knee?
In a study of 44 people with an age range of 20 to 68-years-old, 43 were shown to have abnormal menisci in their knees BUT NO PAIN! (Beattie, K.A. et al. Osteoarthritis Cartilage, 2005)
Have you been told that you have shoulder pain because of a labrum injury?
In a study of 53 people age 43-60, 72% had SLAP injury (a labrum injury) BUT NO PAIN! (Schwarzburg, R. et al. Orthop J Sports Med, 2016)
Have you been told that your hip pain is caused by a labrum injury?
In a study of 45 people age 15 to 66, 69% were shown to have signs of a hip labrum tear BUT NO PAIN! (Register, B. et al. Am J Sports Med, 2012)
Studies like this are becoming more common in research on injuries and pain. In many cases, pain persists because it is not caused by damage as we used to think.
If this is the case, then why are so many of us still dealing with pain day in and day out?
Truth be told, there can be any number of reasons.
The first step you must take to taking your life back is to understand how pain works and why you may still have pain even after treatments promising you relief.
Understanding Pain and Why You May STILL Hurt is your first step.
