5 Ways to Handle Aches and Pains

By Peter Cherney

We all get irritating twinges now and again, particularly if our jobs and lifestyles are demanding. However, if you’re regularly in pain to the extent that your work or personal life is being negatively affected, you shouldn’t try to soldier on in the same way. This article reveals a few things you might want to try in order to relieve your aches and pains and get a spring back in your step.


Pulls, strains, lactic acid build-up and staying in one position for too long can lead to pretty nasty aches and reduced mobility. Regular visits to a trained masseuse or masseur, particularly one that specializes in sports or vocational injuries can make a huge amount of difference. They’ll help to get your muscles and joints relaxed and loose once again. What’s more, if your chosen specialist works at a spa, you might want to take a dip in a therapy pool or relax in a steam room or sauna when you visit. These soothing options will help to release tension and swelling, and may aid in the healing process.


Are you using the right office chair? Do you have sufficient protective equipment in your job? Have you been carrying things that are too heavy for you? Think about the tools and approaches you use in your day to day life. Is there anything you can acquire or get rid of in order to prevent strain or injury? Quality equipment is worth the investment, as it will keep you safe and healthy.


Many people choose to mask aches with basic painkillers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen. However, if you find yourself in discomfort regularly, it may be necessary for you to talk to a doctor, as it may be a sign of an underlying injury or condition, and leaving it may just make it worse. Not only will medical professionals get to the root of the problem and actively work to resolve it they may also recommend medication that will tackle your pain much more effectively. A recent development in the world of healthcare is the legalization of medical marijuana. It’s now freely available in many places and is often used as an effective pain reliever. In order to get your medical marijuana card in Schenectady, New York, for example, you would simply need to fill in an online form and answer a few questions put to you by a Schenectady marijuana doctor. New York State is one of the states that permit the use of medical marijuana.


The food you eat can help to reduce your likelihood of injury. Meat, fish, eggs, grains, beans and nuts contain protein, which will help your muscles and tissues to repair themselves. Certain oils, including Omega-3, which is abundantly found in fish, nuts and seeds are great for your joints too, preventing aches and stiffness. Change your diet to see a significant improvement in your physical comfort.


Some joint injuries and muscular strains result from underuse rather than overuse. This means that your muscles and joints have become used to inactivity, so any physical work that you do undertake is likely to cause greater stress and more pain. A similar problem can arise if you’re carrying around a little too much weight. This can put unnecessary stress on your joints. Try to take on some simple exercise. Go for a jog, lift some dumbbells at home once a day, go swimming or find some other way of staying active. Your body will thank you for it.
