1. Stop perpetuating factors.
Pain is something we all deal with. It’s a part of life, but it doesn’t have to control us!
There are lots of things we do (or don’t do) every day that cause pain. So many that there are too many to list in this post, but I will list a few to get your brain juices flowing. Be mindful about what you do that could be causing your pain and make changes before things get worse for the best outcome possible.
Various Vitamin Deficiencies
Wrong Office Chair Height (Arms or Seat)
Too much of anything (typing, exercise, driving)
2. Stretch the problem areas.
You can get a lot of stretches on our YouTube Channel.
Along those same lines, but opposite concept….strengthen weak areas. People who have back pain commonly have weak glutes. People who have shoulder problems can have weakened upper back muscles.
3. Get a Massage!
If you have fixed the perpetuating factors and have stretched as much as you can, come to get a massage! Massage helps pain get better about 50% each visit, so it really doesn’t take that many massages to help chronic pain start feeling better.
