If you’ve had any kind of pain ever for any reason in your life you know that doctors, your mom, your spouse, your neighbor, etc. are always quick to push pain pills to give you relief. This is great if you have a headache, sprained your back, or got your tooth pulled. But if you’re trying to treat your chronic pain then finding a treatment solution or any kind of solution just got a whole lot messier. Yes, I know that pills or other medicines do they work and are sometimes necessary.
But here are some things you can do that don’t involve actual medicine. These are for the days where you just don’t feel like taking it or for when the pain medicine just isn’t enough.
- Heat. Heat is absolutely my best friend, A heated seat, a heating pad, a warm room. I’ll take it however I can get it. Heating pads are great for localized pain, for me this is usually of the ankle, back or hip region. I don’t know if a warm room actuallyworks, but I’ve convinced myself when my hip is stiff that it does make the feeling a little more bearable. I also know that a lot of people use ice. While this doesn’t work at all for me ever, it may work for you. It couldn’t hurt to try.
