Pain Management 101
At some time in our lives, the vast majority of us will experience the agony of pain. If you are lucky, your pain will be short lived. If not, you will have to do battle with the monster known as chronic pain.
Step 1: Accepting The Condition
The first step in controlling chronic pain is accepting that you have it. Chronic pain is a separate or at least an additional problem from the injury or disease that caused it.
Step 2: Positive Thinking
Are you an individual who approaches difficult situations with great negativity or do you try to look at the bright side? Is your cup half empty or half full?
Step 3: Become Physically Fit
Often individuals with chronic pain stop being active and proactive; they let pain rule their lives. This leads to loss of independence, loss of self esteem, and loss of self confidence.
Step 4: Taking control of your pain through diet
In these days of modern medicine, we seek out the newest pill or procedure to magically cure our ailments. Too frequently we fail to recognize our own abilities to affect our health and wellness. We all know that a healthy diet, moderate exercise and eliminating smoking lessen our risk of heart disease and cancer.
Step 5: Practice Relaxation Techniques Daily
Years of experience and research have taught us that with chronic pain comes muscle spasm. Muscle spasm is a reflex; it’s your body’s reaction to pain that you have no control over. Tense muscles can produce anxiety, depression, fear of more pain, bad posture, and immobility.
Step 6: Understanding Thoughts, Feelings, and Actions
The experience of pain is a complex event, involving an interaction between our physical state-nerves, the brain, and body chemicals-and our psychological state–our thoughts, attitudes, and history.
Step 7: Establish Regular Goals
Setting realistic goals is an essential step in taking control over your pain. It is important to set regular targets in order to achieve results. Make your targets simple and realistic-something you know you can accomplish.
Step 8: Get people to treat you the right way
Although people with chronic pain may not be aware of it, they either directly or indirectly send out signs that seek out attention from others. It may be a groan, a limp, or pained facial expression that tells others things are not well.
Step 9: Working with your doctor
Suffering from pain can leave you irritable and frustrated. If you want to develop a good relationship with your doctor and his office, remember not to take out your frustration on your physician or his staff.
