Some might even need to head out for a doctor’s appointment to address certain health concerns. After all, COVID-19 is not the only disease around.

News just in from our client, Pain Care Specialists of Florida about How Pain Affects Your Immune System

Pain is like the body's warning system. If you're experiencing pain, this means that your brain has triggered an alarm in your nervous system that helps your body fight off threats, like a virus, an infection, or an inflammation.

Ordinarily, the pain goes away within a short period. But if your body is always on alert to fight against threats, then it can eventually harm your immune system. In this time of a pandemic, you can’t afford to have a poor immune system.

The best way to avoid this is by treating the cause of the pain itself. At our Pain Care Specialist Aventura pain management clinic, we use stem cell therapy and other forms of regenerative medicine to treat chronic or recurring pain that no longer responds to conventional treatments. You may contact us if you have any questions.

As a child, were you constantly reminded by your mother to stand or sit upright and maintain a good posture? Did she nag you to stop slouching? Maintaining a good posture is a vital habit and being asked to do so is valuable advice, but many fail to heed this when it should be quite simple. 

There's a pretty simple reason to maintain a good posture, especially when back pain is very common. According to the World Health Organization, some 60 to 70 percent of the adult population in industrialized countries complain of back pain at one point in their lives. This condition is a major cause of disability and even the younger generation is at risk of developing back pain.

Check out our client, Pain Care Specialists of Florida latest blog post about Ease Pain and Avoid Spinal Stenosis Complications Through PRP

Living with spinal stenosis can be a struggle, especially if you frequently experience back pain and discomfort that prevent you from walking and doing your usual activities. When you have spinal stenosis, the spaces within your backbone that house the spinal cord become compressed and narrow, thus putting pressure on the nerve roots that run through your spinal cord.

According to experts in pain management, Aventura, a lot of factors can cause the development of spinal stenosis. However, if you suffer from conditions like scoliosis, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, Paget's disease, spondylolisthesis, trauma, and spinal tumors then you have a higher risk for developing the condition.

As you age, you are even more predisposed to having spinal stenosis complications since 1 in 1000 people above 65 years old and 5 in every 1000 people above 50 years old have symptoms of this condition, according to the Spine Journal.
