What is Considered Chronic Pain?

By: Dr. Ana M. Sierra de Aragon


Many people assume pain is a normal part of life, but long-lasting pain can be debilitating and lead to other serious problems when left untreated. Chronic pain lasts for a period of six months and has not responded to traditional methods like medications. Universal Healing and Wellness now offers photobiomodulation therapy (PBMT) as a noninvasive, drug-free pain management alternative.

Dr. Ana M. Sierra de Aragon can help restore natural healing through advanced laser technologies. Call now to book an appointment in Scottsdale or Gilbert, AZ and begin your journey back to feeling healthy and whole through PBMT.

What is chronic pain, and what does it feel like?

Chronic pain is defined as any pain that lasts longer than six months despite conventional treatments. It ranges from mild to severe and affects people of all ages, genders, and backgrounds. Many people describe the pain as shooting or burning, but tightness, stiffness, or a pins-and-needles sensation are also common.

Universal Healing and Wellness helps individuals who experience a wide range of conditions, including pain due to inflammation, previous trauma or injury, nerve damage, and more. Our comprehensive approach to treatment may include PBMT.

What is photobiomodulation therapy?

PBMT is a form of light therapy that brings relief to one or more areas of the body. During treatment, the laser reacts with your cells to promote natural regeneration in the bones, blood vessels, cartilage, muscles, and nerves.

Dr. Sierra de Aragon may recommend localized low-level laser therapy for a specific location or a full-size light bed in Scottsdale or Gilbert, AZ for more widespread relief and pain management. In either case, our patients report a decrease in pain and inflammation, increased range of motion, and overall improved quality of life.

Why not other pain relief methods?

Chronic pain sufferers often resort to prescription medications, which can become habit-forming and cause unwanted side effects. On the other hand, surgery requires invasive measures and an extended amount of time in recovery. Universal Healing and Wellness offers an alternative approach to pain relief that is drug-free, nonsurgical, and more accessible than other options.

Photobiomodulation therapy is designed to address pain at the source rather than simply masking your symptoms. It encourages the body to heal itself so you can enjoy a life virtually free from pain.
