Try hands-on therapies to tackle your pain
After an accident, particularly one that requires the accident victim to have surgery, a person can be in considerable pain for quite some time. It can be frustrating to see the wounds heal, but still be in so much pain that everyday life is no longer the same.
Being in constant pain can be depressing, tiring and debilitating, especially if neither you nor your doctor can point to the exact cause of your pain. Sometimes hands-on therapies like acupuncture and acupressure can help. They are believed to provide pain relief by stimulating the production of natural painkillers in our bodies, such as endorphins.
Acupuncture may not suit everybody’s idea of pain relief. Needles are inserted at specific “acupoints” around the patient’s body, and this technique has been used for a very long time to relieve pain. It is widely used in Chinese therapy as a treatment of pain.
Other techniques are based on relaxation, such as massage for example, which may reduce any muscle tension in the affected area, as this can sometimes make pain worse. During massage, firm pressure can be applied to painful areas of your body, which may also assist to block pain signals from reaching your brain.
Whichever pain relief method you settle on in the end, relieving your feeling of injustice is just as important after an accident that was caused by somebody else’s negligence and resulted in your current pain. Speak to an accident solicitor about your case!
