Chronic pain

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) -

Dr. William Ferrar is helping patients dealing with chronic pain.

An acute pain is a warning to the body that some part is in danger.

Early and effective treatment of an injury such as a sprain or a pinched nerve can reduce the chance of permanent pain.  

When pain stays chronic, then the use of medications of various types in combination with various exercises can be useful when maintained.
