Pain Management

Millions of people live with chronic pain, affecting a particular part of the body
like the low back, neck, or hip, or simply a general all-over body pain. Irregardless of
what part of you hurts, you want the pain to just stop. While pain symptoms vary from
person to person, there are many treatment options available so that the right pain
treatment can be individually tailored for your needs.

Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) therapies for natural pain relief
include such therapies as yoga, massage, and mind-body techniques, and often are used
in conjunction with medication.

Some treatments provide a break in the stress-pain link, and also give you more
physical flexibility to make moving easier.

Literature suggests that about one-third of pain patients are using
complementary and alternative medicine.

Some common therapies include:

Exercise
Movement, whether it’s walking or water/pool therapy, is key to pain relief.

Yoga
Yoga is another type of movement that may be beneficial for pain relief. It is wise to
be cautious when doing yoga, so consider starting with simple, gentle poses. Working
with an experienced yoga instructor familiar with pain management techniques can be
invaluable.

Massage
Massage aids in the release of endorphins, which can contribute to the therapeutic
benefits for people who suffer from pain. Clinical Healing Reflexology, available at The
Sages’ Touch, L.L.C., at Everybody’s Health Chiropractic & Wellness Center, Mason,
OH, is a specific form of massage. Visit thesagestouch.com for more
information.

Mind-Body Techniques
Meditation, for instance, can help people to relax tense muscles, reduce anxiety, and
create a calm mental state.
