Chronic pain can be an incredibly crippling and sporadic condition. While doctors often describe chronic pain as any pain that lasts between 3 – 6 months, for some it can be a lifelong burden. The pain stems from a series of messages that are being sent to your nervous system. Once the nervous system has processed the message it sends another signal to the brain which tells the body it’s undergoing pain. Fortunately, there are natural solutions to chronic pain that don’t warrant a prescription or antibiotic. But first, let’s delve into the symptoms.What Are The Symptoms Of Chronic Pain?
While everyone undergoes different pain levels, chronic pain is typically marked by unrelenting pain that targets a specific area e.g. back, leg, side. As a result, the 5 S’s of chronic pain are likely to occur: stinging, soreness, stiffness, shooting pain, and squeezing. Moreover, chronic pain symptoms generally fall into two categories: Nociceptive pain and Neuropathic pain. The former is described as sharp, aching, or throbbing pains caused by damage to body tissue, while the latter creates numbness and burning sensations because of nerve damage.Natural vs. Prescribed Medication
Traditional medicine tends to lean on pain medications. It’s not uncommon for pain meds to only temporarily alleviate the pain and in most cases, they’re accompanied by a slew of side effects, most notably, addiction. Natural chronic pain solutions, however, help remedy the pain and don’t
come with additional pain baggage. In some cases, natural pain therapies can even reverse neural damage.
1. Neural Therapy: Neural therapy aims to correct transmitted electrical signals. As a natural local anesthetic, procaine, is injected, the ion pump in the cell wall is normalized which lessens pain
2. Massage Therapy: The benefits associated with massage therapy are unending. This natural method reduces stress and anxiety levels, releases endorphins, and reduces tension in the body
that chronic pain can produce.
3. Chiropractic Therapy: Chiropractic therapy stimulates the body’s communication system while promoting ongoing wellness. In addition, chiropractic care can mitigate inflammation and muscle
4. Intravenous Glutathione Therapy: Designed to increase the levels of glutathione in the body, intravenous glutathione therapy can reduce the muscle and joint discomfort that’s often associated with chronic pain.
