Boy, could I have used a natural cure for pain! Let me tell you a story. I remember the worse pain I have ever experienced. About 25 years ago, when I slept on a sofa very incorrectly, that caused me to sleep with my neck at a very sharp angle.
I woke up with extreme pain with more pain, if that was possible if I tried to move my head!. I could not even drive; it would have been dangerous to drive without the ability to look around. And while I knew intellectually that the pain was there because moving my head was causing more damage, so a natural splint was created to stop me from moving that was very useful!!.
So based on my experience, I offer this article to you just in case.
Let’s get into pain and types of pain and some natural remedies for the pain.
Generally speaking, the discomfort bought by pain to the body is a way of telling us that something is wrong in our body. That is the main reason for despair; being injured or sick will prompt you to be alert by finding a cure (or putting a stop to some actions).
Imagine stepping on a nail, immediately you get hurt, the sensational pain will be triggered by your brain’s response. This response to the stimuli (response to pain) is your body’s way of telling you to stop that painful act.
In your body, there is something called nerve fibers. Nerve fiber meditates pains, and its job is sending signals of pain to the brain. However, nerve fiber differs or is not the same for everyone. That made the perception of pain vary from person to person.
You may feel pain from a slight bone fracture while your friend might not feel pain in a similar scenario, which explains how pain perception and pain tolerance can so much be different from one person to another.
THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF PAIN PEOPLE EXPERIENCE
What are the different types of pain we experienced? This question is complicated because some pain can fit into any category.
However, there are four most common types of pain.
These four types of pain :
Acute pain is short, brief, and quick pain. The pain may last from minutes to about three-six months. Acute pain is a temporary illness; it also tends to relate to a soft tissue injury. The pain tends to subside or stop after the injury or illness heals.
Acute pain is a tender stage of having pain that can evolve into chronic pain if proper care or treatment is not taken in healing the pain correctly or the pain signals malfunctions.
When pain is prolonged or slow in healing, it is known to be chronic pain.
Chronic pain is a pain that is longer in duration and slow at healing. It can be due to a health condition like arthritis, fibromyalgia, or a spine condition. Chronic pain can be intermittent or constraint.
Neuropathic Pain: This pain occurred as damage due to the peripheral nervous system. It is always described as burning, shooting, or stabbing pain. The sensational pain from neuropathic pain is the sensitivity to touch that can make you feel cold or hot.
The similarity between chronic and neuropathic pain is that it is intermittent (meaning to come and go). It is like having a headache that comes and goes; your performance of everyday tasks will become difficult and may be limited as a result.
Any pain caused by damage to body tissue is regarded as Nociceptive pain. Nociceptive pain is a physiological process of pain to bodily functions.his pain is described as a throbbing, sharp, or achy pain caused by an external injury.
For instance, banging your head on a wall, hitting your elbow, twisting your ankle, or scraping your knee on the floor, you may then feel nociceptive pain. All this nociceptive pain is often experienced in the muscles, skin, joints, bones, and tendons. It can be long and short or slow and quick pain (acute and chronic).
NATURAL CURES FOR PAIN
Naturally, some pain comes and goes. This occurs as a result of the differences in our body condition. For example, for a lady having menstruation pain, this pain has an expiration period. But in another lady, the menstrual pain may be different, or the pain might stay for long, requiring more healing strategies.
This is because some ladies often engage in constant exercises or take the right medication compared to others, who do the otherwise, which makes them have stubborn menstrual pain.
Having said that, I am going to list some various methods that will help you cure your pain naturally.
The Various Methods to Cure Your Pain are:
Get moving exercise
Exercise is a general treatment for curing pains, most especially chronic pains. It may help decrease inflammation, increase mobility, and reduce overall pain levels depending on your current state of health.
HEAT OR COLD THERAPY
Heat and cold therapy help to cure pains. The heat therapy helps circulate blood flow to some particular area, helping to relax and soothe muscles and completely heal damaged tissue.
‘Cryotherapy’ as cold therapy is referred to, works by reducing blood flow to a particular area that significantly helps reduce inflammation and swelling that causes pain.
Acupuncture: is a therapy that some doctors believe can help reduce pain. The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) states that acupuncture helps with low back pain, neck pain, osteoarthritis, or knee pain. It is an excellent way to manage chronic pain (i.e., it reduces frequently tension headache)
Yoga and Meditation: Meditating through the physical nature of yoga can help you find a way to manage your pain naturally; the practice of yoga helps with back and neck pain. Yoga practice helps relieve pain relating to stress or anxiety.
Natural ingredients like herbs, oil, aloe vera, coconut, oatmeal, and hydration all help to prevent pains
Essential oils are used for therapeutic or medicinal purposes, known as aromatherapy. They help ease or heal knee and joint pain. These essential oils include Ginger, Cinnamon, Bergamot, Orange, Rosemary, Peppermint, etc.
Manage the pain carefully.
The pain you have can be managed by you, depending on your careful use of treatments to reduce your suffering: managing your pain can improve your physical and mental functions. It enhances the quality of life.
I would also say that after a period of time using some of the methods without any improvement I would recommend that you see a health care professional.
Going by the famous sayings that “prevention is better than cure,” take excellent care of your pain, doing that is as entirely a right way of taking good care of yourself as well.
