Pain can be scary, frustrating, and overwhelming. Take action against pain.
We all have aches and pains from time to time. But if you have chronic pain, you probably experience pain that changes how you live every day. You – and your doctor – might not even know what’s causing your pain.
Whatever the cause, your pain is real. Chronic pain is not in your head, and it is not a sign of weakness.
If you’ve tried pain management before with poor results, you might feel hopeless. But there are some things you can do today to start feeling better and take control of pain.
We’ll show you how to safely use alternative pain treatments, medications, pain management classes and counseling, and at-home options to begin feeling like yourself again.
Begin by learning more about some of the causes of chronic pain, and how to talk to your doctor about what you’re feeling.
Non-drug therapy and alternative treatments can help you manage pain through movement, body work, supplements, and surgery. These work best when you care for yourself properly at home, and add medication as needed. You may find an increase in your pain when you start therapy but this usually gets better.
