As the opioid crisis continues, more and more people are looking for safer alternatives to deal with their pain. Whether that’s pain from surgery or chronic pain, here are some pain relief methods people have found success with in the past:
- Meditation. (Don’t knock it until you try it!)
- Give up smoking.
- Massage therapy.
- Give up alcohol.
- Maintain a healthy diet.
- Find a distracting hobby.
- Cut back on stressful activities.
- Physical therapy.
Obviously, pain is different for everyone (so pain relief will also vary depending on the person). The methods listed above are by no means a guaranteed way to get rid of your pain, but we do believe that they are worth a try!
Many people want to stay away from opioids, with good reason. Here at Elite Pain Management, we take the time to hear exactly what you’re experiencing so that we can help you find the root cause of your pain. Often times, the cause of your pain is something that you wouldn’t expect.
Nerve blocks and injections are some of the ways we can help you experience some relief from pain as well. Our goal isn’t to keep you hooked on some time of medication or be forced to do some type of therapy for the rest of your life – our goal is to figure out the root of you pain, get rid of the pain, and then send you on your way (so that you can go back to doing what you do best – living your life pain free!).
If you have any questions about the pain you are experiencing, we recommend making an appointment with us. To schedule with one of our staff, please call 417-888-0167.
