Natural Ways to Manage Chronic Pain

When it comes to managing pain, many of us rely on medications prescribed by our doctors. However, not all pain management strategies are created equal, and some commonly prescribed medications can carry significant risks. In one of our GoldCare classes, we explored various alternatives to traditional pain medications. Here’s a glimpse into what we discussed.

The Risks of Prescription Pain Medications

Our class delved into the dangers associated with common pain medications. Narcotics, often prescribed for severe pain, can be addictive and have side effects such as constipation and the risk of overdose. In 2019 alone, 70,000 people died from drug overdoses, many of which were linked to prescription opioids.

Types of Pain

We discussed different types of pain, including acute pain, which is sharp and short-term, usually resulting from injuries or surgeries, and chronic pain, which lasts over three months and can be related to conditions like arthritis or nerve damage.

Alternative Pain Management Techniques

Our discussion also touched on several non-pharmaceutical methods for managing pain:

  • Hypnotherapy and Guided Meditation
  • Chiropractic Care
  • Acupuncture
  • Essential Oils
  • Yoga and Deep Tissue Massage
  • Sound Healing and Grounding
