Tackling Your Pain Issues

Chronic pain afflicts millions of people in the U.S., with many turning to injections, addictive pain medications and invasive surgeries to resolve their pain issues. However, these solutions don’t always work and can even cause moderate to severe complications.

Surgeries can further complicate issues by damaging tissue and nerves, and addictive pain medications can keep you going back to using them for even the slightest of aches. Surgeries and medications can also prove expensive.

But there are other ways to manage pain that don’t require surgeries, medication or steroid injections.

Managing Your Pain

For some patients all it takes is a few lifestyle tweaks for chronic pain to alleviate or even disappear. Here are a few techniques that help some patients alleviate chronic pain:

  • Meditate

    – Deep breathing and meditation can help your body naturally relax, reducing tension and tightness caused by stress or agitation. Focus on your breathing as you meditate, dispelling excess thoughts and worries while repeating a phrase or word to maintain your focus.1

  • Get a Massage

    – A massage will not only reduce stress but also relieve tension in your muscles and the pain tension causes. Massages are perfect for people with chronic back and neck pain.

  • Eat Well

    – A balanced diet isn’t just healthy for your waistline. A healthy diet rich in nutrients but low in fat and sodium can facilitate healthy body processes, aiding your digestive system, keeping bones strong, etc. and can reduce pain in the process by keeping muscles and bones strong.

  • Exercise More –

    Exercise might be painful if you experience symptoms of chronic pain, but exercising with a routine tailored to your symptoms can actually block pain. Exercise releases endorphins which blocks pain receptors, strengthens muscles and prevents re-injury and additional pain from occurring. Consult a doctor first to develop an exercise routine that won’t exacerbate your pain issues.

While helpful, these might not be enough to solve more complicated pain issues.
