Due to our course of work in school, at the office, or even at home, we always feel beaten up and in pain at the end of the day. The pain we feel in different parts of our body- in the neck, back, head, and joints- are so distracting they sometimes curtail our daily activities.
Chronic pain is the kind of pain that sustains for a duration of time. This is characterized by muscle strain, and aching sensation in body parts such as the neck, back, head and the knees.
What is worse is the pain does not only render us physical pain, but also emotional and even financial! The prices of medications for chronic pain are too high they cause a smack out of our funds.
But there are easy and inexpensive ways to soothe the hurt we feel from chronic pain. Here are some of the most common ways to get rid of chronic pain…the natural way!
- 1. Exercise. This activity is said to be the safest, easiest and most effective way to soothe the effects of chronic pain. Doing some exercise makes our body release endorphins, which is a body chemical that relieves pain. Endorphins has the same healing effects as opiates like morphine and codeine, only that endorphin is free and safe.
2. Sleep. When we sleep, our muscles relax and become less tensed. Sleeping also allows the flow of blood in our body smoothly and easily. In other words, sleeping lets our body function the natural and tension-free way. Hence, every strained muscle heals itself naturally and effectively. So, if you are feeling chronic pain, just make sure you get that complete and satisfying sleep.
3. Music therapy. Who could have thought that music was more than just for our entertainment? Indeed, music can serve as fine as medication for chronic pain. Listening to mellow music while we rest allows our body to relax and get rid of tension, stress, anxiety and depression.
