How to control ongoing pain
If you have had an accident or injury and are still recovering from the pain, you may find that the pain is often worse when you are thinking about it, or when you are bored and have nothing else to distract you. Of course, it is important to listen to your doctor when it comes to the recovery process and take any medications you have been given, as well as taking part in any therapy or treatment which is prescribed. But there are other things you can do as well to keep yourself busy and keep the pain at bay:
- Try to distract yourself. This needs to be an ongoing thing so that you don’t focus on any pain that you are in. Keep yourself busy with activities that you enjoy and are completely immersive, but which don’t require you to move too much or exacerbate your pain. Reading is more immersive than watching a film, and writing will be even more absorbing.
- Relax. Put some time aside to relax, think and clear your head of any worries and stress. Stress can often make you feel worse both physically and mentally, and there are often lots of things to worry about when you have been badly injured. Take some time out to think about things which are going well for you, and do some breathing exercises to get as relaxed as possible.
- Get a massage. If you can, get a massage on the area which is causing you the most pain. Make sure you use a trained massage therapist, and you should find that they are able to loosen up the areas that are giving you the most pain and make you feel instantly a little better.
- Be patient. When you are in pain, it is normal to want to feel better as soon as possible, but you need to let your body deal with the situation at its own pace. Be patient and focus on the fact that your body will soon recover.
