Pain Relief For Chronic Pain Sufferers
While pain can occur at any age, physical pain becomes all too common as we age. Years of physical activity, working, and using our bodies in myriad ways take a toll on our muscles, joints, ligaments, tendons, and our bodies in general. Certainly the pharmaceutical companies have cashed in on this reality over the past several decades. The use of pain relief medications is at an all-time high and pain management centers can be found in every major city of the United States. Clearly, relieving pain is big business and the demand for it is substantial.
The good news is there are natural ways to relieve pain and improve your range of motion. Enter Stretch Therapy, one of the most innovative and popular ways for modern and effective pain control. Chronic lower back pain can be debilitative and restricting, limiting your enjoyment of life and your ability to interact with the people you love. Medications and external solutions such as topical ointments with heat and ice designed to relieve lower back pain, may only mask the pain temporarily without addressing the underlying issues.
Natural back pain relief and back pain treatment are more effectively addressed via the use of Stretch Therapy. By repairing damaged muscles and tissue, strengthening fascia that surrounds the muscles, and re-patterning the brain by sending messages that promote healing, pain management can be realized effectively and permanently. Neck pain relief may be approached and relieved in exactly the same manner.
A chronic pain specialist will prescribe specific and regular trigger point exercises that serve to strengthen fascia, and reinforce muscle and tissue strength, thereby re-patterning and conditioning the body for successful and non medicated pain relief. The use of heat and cold therapy are also helpful during the time in which Stretch Therapy is being initiated and will relieve some of the soreness and tightening that is common in the early stages of ST.
Additional benefits above and beyond pain relief will include improved posture, increased range of motion, and increased flexibility. Stretching the soft tissues such as muscles, ligaments, and tendons in the back and elsewhere can be beneficial for anyone at any age. Your body is designed for movement and flexibility so when these are limited or restricted the result can be chronic pain. Regular stretching exercises accompanied by a prescribed regimen by your stretch therapist will result in meaningful and sustained relief of chronic pain issues without the dangerous side effects of pain medications.
