I know that there are many, many people who live with acute and/or chronic pain. Being in the medical field, I’ve seen countless patients who are trying to manage their pain. Some people choose to treat their pain with prescribed medications, and while that may be necessary for some, I personally would love to see more people try alternative therapies more often to help alleviate some of the discomforts that they are experiencing.
Having spent nearly a decade as a certified nurses assistant, I definitely put my body through a lot of work by bending, stooping, lifting, etc. During my time as a CNA I pulled a back muscle, bruised a bone in my foot (thanks to it being ran over by someone in a wheelchair!) and fractured a rib (we won’t talk about how that happened!). Anyways, I definitely experience aches and pains from time to time still, so I get it. Having chronic pain sucks.
I wanted to share some alternative ways that have helped me or other people I know who live with pain.
