Pain and discomfort are two of the most difficult things to deal with, especially when it becomes quite debilitating, as it can disrupt the flow of your daily activities. Fortunately, there are effective alternative remedies around that can really help get rid of pain and discomfort.
Here are the top three ones:
Undergoing Chiropractic Treatment
I’ve experienced getting chiropractic treatment while I was in Chandler, AZ, a few years back. I had pulled a muscle and hurt my back from one of the activities we had, and in the evening, started feeling a bit of pain in my lower back as well. After spending a full next day feeling pain and discomfort, I decided to follow my relative’s advice to try chiropractic medicine, as she herself had tried it once before.
There are various “adjustment” types to address different pain types, with the one that I received, I felt immediate relief after just being on the clinic bed for less than 10 minutes. It was a quick, pretty straightforward treatment, and I was out the door in less than half an hour after my scheduled appointment. I felt a sense of relief and can actually feel my blood flowing that I felt more energized throughout the day and the days after that. It was worth every penny indeed. There are also chiropractic treatments for neck pain and other problems.
Swimming and Pool Exercises
Another way to get rid of the usual aches and pains is by swimming, which gives your entire body the much-needed exercise that it needs. It’s also a great exercise method for those with joint and knee problems, as it allows the body to move with very little impact, causing no pain in the joints or the knees.
Aside from a great way to get a full-body workout, it does the job of keeping the body fit, promoting agility, and improving lung strength. It’s a great outdoor activity for adults and for families with kids. Teaching young kids how to swim early on helps in the development of their self-confidence. Swimming not only offers therapeutic relief from body aches and pains, but it’s also a great outdoor activity, an excellent way to stay fit, and a life-saving skill that everyone should learn.
Using Essential Oils
Lastly, essential oils. This alternative remedy has been gaining popularity these days as more people are looking for ways to de-stress and relax that involve a more natural approach. Enter the essential oils. These oils have been around since time immemorial and actually have the ability to heal some cases of persistent skin problems, help in getting better sleep, and even in de-stressing. The most popular and useful oil would be lavender oil, as it has many uses.
From working as a disinfectant to effective sleep aid, not to mention calming the nerves, this is something every essential oil user must have in their EO arsenal. Since using this myself, I have noticed that it’s much easier to doze off even on days that aren’t as tiring as the worked-all-day ones.
It’s important to note that the dosage for using any essential oil depends on the age and overall health condition of the person. There are also oils that aren’t advisable for pregnant or lactating mothers, while there are oils that work perfectly safe for them.
If you’ve been dealing with headaches, body pains, and other physical discomforts that may be due to stress or lack of exercise, these remedies can absolutely help straighten things out for you and provide you with lasting relief and a healthier body, too. If you’re eager to get out of the cycle that pain and discomfort put you through, give these remedy options a go so you can start living healthier and pain-free from now on.
