What is Pain Management?

Any kind of pain causes discomfort, limits function and impacts your day-to-day life. Pain management effectively helps patients control the pain from various health conditions. Pain management involves various techniques to deal with pain. Pain management means treating all kinds of pain including spinal, musculoskeletal and neuropathic pain.

What Are the Simple Pain Management Tips for Neck & Back Pain?

  • Don’t panic: If you are suffering from neck and back pain. Talk to your doctor. Get diagnosed to determine the cause and ask for treatment.
  • Ice and heat therapy: Ice and heat can relieve pain that arises due to ligament and muscle strain. Ice reduces inflammation and swelling and acts as a local anesthetic so use ice for 48 hours and after that use heat. Heat increases the flow of blood to deep tissue and relaxes muscle spasms.
  • Over the counter medications: Over the counter medications such as aspirin, naproxen sodium or ibuprofen can help you control pain. These can effectively diminish pain and reduce inflammation both in the neck and back.
  • Massage: Gentle massage is great for pain. Manual massage provides pain relief by stretching tight ligaments and muscles. Massage can provide you immediate pain relief.
  • Lifestyle changes: When you have pain, you need to make some alterations in the way you approach routine activities. Maintain the normal curvature of the spine. Good posture can also help you recover fast. Pay attention to your sitting, standing, driving, lifting, walking and sleeping postures.
