Recognizing that chronic pain is a problem is the first step in finding treatment. Start by talking to your doctor about chronic pain symptoms. Together, you can identify the source of the pain and produce a comprehensive treatment plan that considers your overall health and lifestyle. However, you might find solutions to various, even severe, long-term chronic pain complications by reading this brief article, which is intended as general guidance based on the most recent scientific know-how but is not meant to replace medical advice.

The 10 Ways to Alleviate Chronic Pain

1. Topical pain relief:

Oral medications are not the only type of OTC pain relief. Topical creams are also available. These are often used to relieve pain associated with arthritis and muscle aches.

2. Treatment for back pain:

Among people seeking back pain relief alternatives, most choose chiropractic treatment. Chiropractors use hands-on spinal manipulation and other alternative treatments, the theory being that proper alignment of the body’s musculoskeletal structure, particularly the spine, will enable the body to heal itself without surgery or medication.

3. Exercise:

Regular exercise and physical therapy are usually part of any pain management plan. Regular exercise is essential for treating chronic pain because it helps: 

  • Strengthen muscles
  • Increase joint mobility
  • Improve sleep
  • Release endorphins
  • Reduce overall pain 

4. Relaxation:

Relaxation techniques are often recommended as part of a treatment plan. They help to reduce stress and decrease muscle tension. Relaxation techniques include: 

  • Meditation 
  • Massage
  • Yoga – Yoga also has other benefits for chronic pain. It can help strengthen muscles and improve flexibility.

5. Biofeedback:

Biofeedback is another technique for pain management. It works by measuring information about physical characteristics such as:

  • Muscle tension
  • Heart rate
  • Brain activity
  • Skin temperature 

The feedback enhances an individual’s awareness of physical changes associated with stress or pain. Knowledge can help a person train to manage physical and emotional pain.

6. Acupuncture and acupressure:

Acupuncture and acupressure are types of traditional Chinese medicine. They relieve pain by manipulating key points of the body. This prompts the body to release endorphins, which can block messages of pain from being delivered to the brain.

7. Anticonvulsants (Anti-seizure) Medications:

These medications can be beneficial for some kinds of nerve-type pain (such as burning and shooting pain). These medications also are not meant to be taken on an “as needed” basis. They should be taken every day whether you feel pain.

8. Antidepressants:

Antidepressants are drugs that can treat pain and emotional conditions by adjusting levels of neurotransmitters (natural chemicals) in the brain. These medications can increase the availability of the body’s signals for well-being and relaxation, enabling pain control for some people with chronic pain conditions that do not entirely respond to usual treatments. Research suggests antidepressants work best for neuropathic or nerve pain.

9. Corticosteroids:

Corticosteroids provide relief for inflamed areas of the body by easing swelling, redness, itching, and allergic reactions. They can be used to treat allergies, asthma, and arthritis. 

10. Vasodilation

One of the best options for relieving various chronic pains is vasodilation. Vasodilation is best administered to significantly alleviate chronic pains, it is non-opioid, highly efficient and non-addictive. Vasodilation may reduce restrictions of blood flow through the blood vessels, decreasing blood pressure, while increasing blood circulation. Improved vasodilation functions inside the body may benefit a person in many ways.

There are distinct types of vasodilators, but D’OXYVA (deoxyhemoglobin vasodilator) has an exceptional efficacy and safety profile. Subjects suffering from high blood sugar have reported neuropathy pain relief a half hour after D’OXYVA was administered. D’OXYVA is an advanced, non-invasive, and non-opioid biotech solution that has demonstrated significant strengthening of the body’s natural healing foundation: the autonomic nervous system (parasympathetic nerve activity) and the microcirculatory system.
