When you are seriously injured, one of the things that makes getting on with your day to day life the most difficult is the fact that you are likely to be in pain a lot of the time. Your doctor should be able to prescribe painkillers and other medication which can help you to get through the worst of the pain, but there will still be times when you have to wait before you can take more medication. Some painkillers can make you drowsy and make it hard for you to function, so this can mean that you won’t want to take medication all of the time. Here are some ways that you can beat pain without medication.
- Don’t take painkillers too often. If you are taking painkillers constantly then you will not be used to any level of pain, meaning that when you aren’t able to take any you will struggle more to cope. Not only this, but if you take any form of medication too much, it becomes less effective for you.
- Take a bath. A bath or any form of heat on the areas that hurt is a great way for you to ease pain all over your body in a natural way. It works to ease the muscles that are contracting with pain, helping to ease the pain over a larger area rather than only where the source of the pain is. Being natural, you can apply heat for as long as you want as well.
- Apply ice. This is better for new injuries, which are still swelling. Ice brings down the swelling and inflammation, and will naturally ease the pain as well.
- Try breathing exercises. Breathing has been proven to help with serious pain to great effect, and is one of the easiest ways to cope with pain that may come on suddenly.
