Pain is one of the biggest forms of stress that we humans suffer from. Being in pain, whether that is a dull ache or acute, sharp agony, is very debilitating and most of us seek any way possible to put a stop to the suffering it causes. There are various forms of pain relief available; some have to be prescribed by a medical professional and others are available to buy over the counter at pharmacies and in supermarkets. The pain relief method chosen depends, of course, on the nature of the pain and it’s original cause. A pain such as a headache will require less painkilling than that of physical injuries to the body, for example.
However, a lot of people turn to more unconventional pain relief methods. This may be because they do not like to take drugs when other ways of relieving pain are available, or perhaps they feel drugs no longer work and want to try something else. Whatever the reason, once again, the unconventional methods of pain relief depend on the pain patches being suffered.
For pain such as chronic back pain, alternative methods of pain relief include visiting chiropractics, massage therapy and acupuncture. For sufferers of conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, glucosamine tablets have been known to work, and undertaking gentle exercise such as walking and swimming, if the person involved feels able to do this.
There are even alternative pain relief methods available for pain such as toothache and headache; some say holding thick slices of cucumber that is chilled from the fridge to the sore tooth and gum will ease the discomfort, and acupressure is celebrated globally as a relief for headaches.
There are also products available that aim to provide pain relief for a multiple of problems. Pain relief plasters are sold by some companies; these are for aching muscles in variety of places including the calves, neck and shoulders. They are also used to treat arthritis. Another product is the Painwave X4000 – this is a ‘pen’ style device that uses bio electromagnetic waves to stimulate the body’s immune system.
The Painwave X4000 treats a wide range of conditions including arthritis, dental pain, heel pain, gout, migraine and diabetes pain, amongst others. This method states to have no side effects and is easily transportable so it can be carried around easily. Also, it can be used over clothes, which is good if using in public.
If you feel you would like to look at alternative methods of relieving your pain, make sure you consult with your doctor if necessary to ensure they have full knowledge and approval for what you are planning to do. They may be able to give you further information, or suggest different methods to the ones you are contemplating. It is also important to research the suppliers you are using to buy your products from; make sure they can give you detailed information and are available to speak with on the phone if you want to speak with them.
