When you feel pain, your body is sending you a signal you shouldn’t ignore. Pain is subject to many factors, including memories, expectations and emotions. The good news is that you can do something about all different kinds of pain – from simple to chronic.
- Massage. Find a massage therapist to relax any muscles in spasm to increase circulation. Consider purchasing books on self or couples massage, and practice techniques with a friend.
- Mental Health. Consider working with a mental health practitioner who has pain management skills.
- Keep a diary. Record your level of pain every hour and see how it is related to the time of day, your mood, fatigue, stress, and what you are doing.
- Make pain your friend. Once you hear and understand the basis of your pain, you may regain control of the pain and of your life.
- Relax your body. The medical evidence is strong that relaxation techniques can reduce chronic pain.
- Exercise. Movement distracts you from pain and helps your body to release endorphins – natural painkillers
- Meditate. If you are constantly thinking about your pain, meditation can help you. Meditators often realize you can control you pain.
- Use guided imagery. Work with a trained professional, or purchase a book or tape.
- Nurture yourself. At least half an hour a day doing some activity that gives you pleasure. Rediscover how joyful your body can feel.
Water. Drink 6-8 glasses of water daily. Pain is sometimes due to simple dehydration.
