It is possible to become your own back pain, management expert. If you've ever suffered from chronic back pain, sciatica pain, or herniated discs, then you know how overwhelming it can be.
We seek ways to ease the pain, or at the very least to calm it down so that we can live life to its fullest. You have probably tried many prescriptions and over-the-counter painkillers. However, It would be highly recommended to get help from a professional Santa Barbara chiropractor.
The pain has not stopped despite the fact that you have seen many doctors and had MRIs, physical therapy, and surgery. Recently, I spoke to someone whose brother had four back operations.
Yes, four! Is he pain-free? He is actually worse off than he was before the first surgery. He is definitely in dire need of pain management.
Pain can be subjective and difficult to treat. Doctors often dismiss non-specific pain. These doctors are trained to search for organic causes. What can a person do to solve this problem? The short answer is that they should become their own pain management specialists.
1.Exercise- There are many exercises that you can do. Some programs are as easy as walking, yoga, Qigong, and swimming. Exercise has been proven to be an effective pain management tool. Start slow, increase intensity and duration slowly. Learn to listen to your body and become your pain management coach.
2.Manipulation- All types of manipulation can relieve stress and pressure from your body, including massage therapy, chiropractic adjustments (osteopathy), acupuncture, and osteopathy. It doesn't matter if it is performed by a professional or friend, there is plenty of evidence to support the effectiveness of touch in managing pain.
3.Hypnosis- A trained hypnotist will help you relieve your pain. You won't start barking like a dog if you see a cat. Other coping strategies, such as biofeedback, can also be very helpful in relieving or eliminating pain.
