Relying on pain medication, isn’t always healthy. Especially for those who have suffered from substance abuse. It’s really frustrating for those who have a problem with substance abuse, and are in serious pain. Taking pain medication, can possibly lead you right back down a road of drugs and alcohol again. Even those who’ve never done drugs, have become quite easily addicted to pain medication. Taking pain medication is really not a very safe at all. What if you work, and have to operate a vehicle? It makes things much more complicated. So what do you? I’ll show you ways to reduce pain, without addicting pain medication.
Put an ice pack on where you feel the pain. This can be extremely helpful and easy way to relieve pain. There’s even a ice massage therapy, for those who suffer bad backs. Extremely helpful for bad joins and torn muscles. Can help heal as well.
Massage where the pain is coming from. Great for backs and necks, if that’s where you’re feeling pain. Gently massage, or have someone massage where you’re feeling the pain the most. It will help you relieve the tension along with the pain. May not relieve it completely, but should help at lease. Try to relax your body as best as you can.
Get an acupuncture. I know sticking needles into your body may seem worse, but it does relieve pain. Locate a practitioner, if you’re dealing with severe pain. This can be as helpful as pain meds. Probably the most effective way to eliminate pain, without any pain medication.
