Relieve pain without medication
If you have had an accident or sustained a serious injury, the recovery process can take a long time and you may be in pain for some time. The obvious way to treat any pain is to go for medication, but if you are recovering from something serious then it is likely that you will already be on a lot of medication and will not want to overload your body.
On top of this, overusing painkillers can actually make them less effective and even lead to addiction if used in the long run. You do not want to overdose on any type of medication, so if your pain flares up between doses it can be helpful to know how to relieve and control the pain without having to use medication. The following tips will help you to relieve dull, constant pain without having to use painkillers or any other type of medication:
- Deep breathing: This is one of the simplest and most instant ways to relieve pain. When you are in pain you tend to tense up and hyperventilate, and concentrating your breathing will help you to feel better.
- Use ice and heat: This is another instant painkiller which is always available. Use ice or heat on the area that is causing you pain, depending on what kind of pain you are in. Ice can help to reduce swelling, whilst heat can numb the pain.
- Rest: Your body heals much more quickly when it is well rested. If you sleep as much as you can, you shouldn’t feel the pain as much. A lot of pain is made worse by trying to be too active, so rest as much as you can.
