There are a number of self-help measures you can take to help ease pain. First, it’s important to stay as active as possible. Exercise can help to increase blood flow and flexibility, both of which can help to reduce pain. However, it’s important not to overdo it – start slowly and build up gradually. Secondly, heat or cold therapy can be effective in easing pain. Heat can help to increase blood flow and loosen muscles, while cold can help to reduce inflammation. Again, it’s important not to overdo it – use heat or cold for no more than 15 minutes at a time. Lastly, relaxation techniques such as deep breathing, massage, and meditation can help to ease both pain and stress. Once again, start slowly and build up gradually. By taking these self-help measures, you can help to ease pain and improve your quality of life.
