About Chronic Pain Panel
Chronic pain is unlike most other ailments the human body undergoes. Many who live with chronic pain look healthy from the outside but, internally, are experiencing so much pain that they have a difficult time living a normal day-to-day life. While medication like opiates help some through their short term pain, they can become a debilitating addiction for those with chronic pain, leaving the patient with more issues than just their physical pain. As the US works to eliminate the opioid epidemic, true chronic pain sufferers may find themselves with less options for relief. Fagron Genomics US’ Chronic Pain Panel aims to bring validity to patients’ pain while supplying providers the knowledge they need to create a personalized chronic pain treatment protocol for their patients.
Our Chronic Pain Nutrigenomic Panel examines 21 gene variants, revealing genetic tendencies in inflammation, detoxification, metabolism, and neurotransmitters. The report provides personalized recommendations, including a low inflammatory diet, addressing contributors to chronic pain. Insights into detoxification and medication sensitivity guide health precautions and lifestyle advice. Crafted by experts, our report translates DNA results into precise recommendations, empowering providers in personalized medicine through our proprietary software.
The report, created by our medical experts, will take the patient’s DNA results and create nutritional and lifestyle recommendations along with recommended lab work a provider should consider for the patient. Health precautions are also included in the report and is based upon many factors and our experts’ clinical expertise. The built-in proprietary software takes out the guess work and allows the provider to recommend the proper nutrition and health advisements safely by your DNA results.
Sensory Medicine: Types of Pain & Pain Receptors
Not all chronic pain is the same. Some suffer from burning pain, shooting pain, hot and cold sensitivity, among others. Different pain syndromes involve different types of nerves. There are two types of pain: acute opiate responsive pain, and inflammatory pain. Acute opiate responsive pain is a result of trauma, common with post-surgical patients. Inflammatory pain is when inflammation is affecting some muscle fibers and not others. These muscle fibers serve sensory organs, meaning the pain is sensory—not motor. The 5 types of pain receptors are: acute pain, mechanoreceptors, stretch receptors, thermoreceptors, and proprioceptive receptors. Sensory pain is difficult to test, leaving many chronic pain patients without proof of that their pain is in fact physiological.
