Pain is a very common condition. Pain can be due to stress of muscles, an injury, an accident, due to illness.
There are two main types of pain:
- Acute pain – a normal response to an injury. It starts suddenly and is usually short-lived
- Chronic pain – continues beyond the time expected for healing. It generally lasts for longer than three months.
You can do a number of things at home to feel better. But go to a doctor if it suddenly gets worse or changes -- especially if there’s tingling, numbness, or burning -- or if nothing you try makes you feel better.

TREATING BODY PAINS
With a world full of people ready to evolve more day-by-day, many treatments are available to help you manage your pain. A combination of treatments and therapies is often more effective than just one, we must say.
You can take our advice at our office whenever you need us. Along with this, listed here are some of the techniques you could follow:
- NATURAL PHYSICAL THERAPIES – Take exercises like walking, stretching, strengthening or aerobic exercises. This may help reduce pain. You may need to increase your exercise very slowly to avoid overdoing it.
- HEAT OR COLD – use ice packs immediately after an injury to reduce swelling. Heat packs are better for relieving chronic muscle or joint injuries. They reduce additional stress to muscles.
- MASSAGE – this is better suited to soft tissue injuries and should be avoided if the pain is in the joints. There is some evidence that suggests massage may help manage pain, but it is not recommended as a long-term therapy. Consult a therapist for a solution to such pains.
- Practice meditation and yoga for relaxation of muscles and relieving stress.
- ACUPUNCTURE – a component of traditional Chinese medicine. Acupuncture is a complementary medical practice that entails stimulating certain points on the body, most often with a needle penetrating the skin, to alleviate pain or to help treat various health conditions. . It aims to restore balance within the body and encourage it to heal by releasing natural pain-relieving compounds (endorphins). Some people find that acupuncture reduces the severity of their pain and enables them to maintain function.
