There are a variety of chronic pain disorders that tend to carry many different names (chronic pain syndrome, CRPS, fibromyalgia, myofascial pain syndrome, etc.); however, they all can drastically decrease the standard of living for those who suffer from them. These conditions are complex, poorly understood, and often difficult to treat. They are usually multifactorial and require several specialists to be involved in their muscle pain treatment.
While other symptoms such as fatigue, memory issues, and poor sleep are often present, one of the most significant symptoms of these disorders is musculoskeletal pain. Typically, patients with these conditions will benefit from evaluation and treatment by an osteopathic musculoskeletal specialist. Dr. Hennenhoefer will work with you to determine what treatments your body can tolerate and provide the most relief.
Dr. Hennenhoefer will often combine hands-on joint & muscle pain treatment with dry needling and a home exercise program to address a variety of factors that are contributing to your chronic pain. In doing so, patients will often notice a decrease in their pain level, increase in their function, and overall improvement in quality of life.
