Natural Pain Relief & Prevention
Although we’re proud of our fantastic products here at Ramedicare (don’t mind if we toot our own horn!), we understand the importance of pain management as many of our Ramedica users suffer from arthritis, back pain, neck tension, shoulder tension, joint pain, headache and more. If pain management is what you’re after – we’ve got you covered with Ramedica Pain Relief balm (or Herbal Wonder Balm – in the overseas market), roll-on, and plaster, but we’d love to see you pain-free in the first place; pain prevention is king!
We had to share this article from the experts at Arthritis Help! In it, you’ll find 11 simple tips for relieving pain naturally. It covers the whole gamut: body, mind & spirit. From exercises and stretches, pain-reducing foods, warming and cooling the joints, and even meditation – the info here is useful for anyone suffering from any kind of pain, not just arthritis. We recommend bookmarking it. it’s a great resource for pain prevention.
Here are a Few of Our Favourites:
- Get Moving
Exercise is frequently associated with a decrease in arthritis joint pain. Exercise may reduce pain because it strengthens muscles that support joints, triggers the body to produces endorphins that result in pain relief… What type of exercise you do depends on your current fitness level and other factors, such as where you live and whether you have access to a gym. Walking, pool exercise, and tai chi are considered gentle on joints and good for beginners.
- Cultivate Relationships
People with chronic pain who have social networks tend to rate their pain lower and are less likely to report that pain interferes with their day-to-day activities. There are many ways to expand your social network—for example…
Meditation is a quick, simple, and free way to relax. One easy method: choose a sound that is pleasing to you but has no particular meaning, sit or lie somewhere comfortable, close your eyes, and repeat the sound in your mind…
- Enjoy a Massage (our personal favourite)
Therapeutic massage can loosen your tight muscles, get your blood flowing, and calm your mind. A review of several small medical studies found massage may help reduce pain in people who have osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, though results were mixed…(you can also practice self massage, check out last month’s blog post here for step by step instructions.)
