Chronic pain is a problem that affects millions of Americans. The pain can often be debilitating and interfere with your ability to live a normal life. Chronic pain can also affect every aspect of your life, including your physical and emotional health, finances, and relationships. The good news is that there are many things you can do to manage chronic pain naturally and reduce its impact on your life. This blog will offer suggestions on how to manage chronic pain naturally without medication.
Exercise To Manage Chronic Pain
It is the hardest thing to do when you’re in pain, but exercise can actually help relieve chronic pain by increasing blood flow to injured areas and improving muscle strength and flexibility. It also releases endorphins which help reduce stress and improve moods. And there’s no better time than now to start exercising! Start slow, then gradually increase the intensity over time as your body gets stronger.
Massage Therapy May Offer Relief For Chronic Pain
Massage therapy is another great option for managing chronic pain because it improves circulation while relaxing tense muscles at the same time! It has been shown to help relieve many types of chronic pain symptoms such as headaches, lower back pain, fibromyalgia, and more. The benefits are due to the release of endorphins following massage therapy sessions which can help reduce inflammation in the body, which may contribute to chronic pain symptoms.
Massage therapy involves applying pressure with the HiDow Pro Touch to specific points on the body known as trigger points or TP. These trigger points are located along the muscle fibers and nerves that run beneath our skin. The goal of massage therapy is to release these trigger points so that they no longer cause pain or other symptoms such as headaches or nausea.
Acupuncture May Help With Chronic Pain Symptoms
Another great way to naturally manage chronic pain symptoms is through acupuncture treatments. Acupuncture uses needles inserted into specific points on your body in order to stimulate certain areas of your nervous system, which may help reduce inflammation in your body and decrease pain sensations throughout your body.
Herbal Supplements, Vitamins, and Minerals May Help Manage Chronic Pain
Many herbs have been said to help manage chronic pain symptoms and keep them from getting worse over time. These supplements include valerian root extract, kava root extract, and capsaicin cream. Valerian root extract may help ease muscle spasms and calm anxiety associated with chronic pain. Kava kava root extract contains compounds called kavalactones that have muscle relaxant properties and may help reduce stress-related tension headaches. Capsaicin cream has been found effective at reducing nerve inflammation caused by shingles or diabetic neuropathy, better known as nerve damage caused by diabetes.
