Medication isn’t your only option for relieving your chronic pain!
Chronic pain can affect every single area of your life, and many people feel like they cannot live without their pain medication. At Charmed FIR Mats, we want you to know that medication isn’t your only option. In fact, there are many alternative pain relief methods that are natural, noninvasive and medication-free! Here are a few of the best methods for relieving chronic pain that have nothing to do with medication:
#1. Heat Therapy
Heat and cold therapies are some of the most effective alternatives to pain medication. Cold therapy is typically used after injuries, because it helps to reduce inflammation, but heat therapy is a wonderful option for chronic pain. At Charmed FIR Mats, we offer one-of-a-kind mats that provide far infrared therapy. Far infrared therapy is the next level of heat therapy because it allows the heat to penetrate into your skin without harming it.
When you meditate and are able to focus on something other than you pain, it may help you find relief. In one study, about half of 109 patients who had chronic pain were assigned to a mindfulness meditation program, while the other half was assigned to a wait list. Not only did the participants who meditated report more pain relief, they also experienced less depression and anxiety and had improved mental outlooks on life.
These are just a couple of the many natural methods you can try to find relief from your chronic pain. Stay tuned for our next blog to learn more.
