How Relaxation Benefits Pain Management

relax

 

Relaxation is a great coping strategy for pain management. It reduces fear, anxiety, and emotional stress, all of which increase chronic pain symptoms. Relaxation is like any other “skill” in life. You need to practice it in different contexts to make sure your coping strategy is there when you really need it. Finding your quiet space to relax is only good when you’re in that quiet space, however that does little for you when your at work or around loud children. Don’t be afraid to move and don’t let fear manage your life. Here are some, but not limited to, general relaxation exercises:

1. Breathe deeply
2. Take a walk and be present in the moment
3. Decompress by adding heat to your neck or back
4. Get moving by doing a favorite workout
5. Take a bath
6. Be grateful

If some of these techniques don’t work, come in for a visit and we’d love to give you a plan to help you with pain management. Get educated now!

How much Water do I need per day?

Does dehydration cause muscle cramps? What should be my daily intake?  These are common questions athletes are concerned about.

After doing some research investigation it turns out there is no good science to support any recommendation. It is essentially an argument with no science behind it. There is one good study that was done to show that dehydration DOES NOT cause muscle cramps in endurance athletes. It was the level of intensity that was shown to cause muscle cramps in endurance athletes, not dehydration

So, it’s probably not that big of a concern for everyone else either. People who buy into the 8×8 program usually are selling bottled water. That’s not surprising, but unfortunate. I like this quote by Dr. Timothy Noakes which states“ It is time for the American College of Sports Medicine to acknowledge that humans, like all other earthly creatures, do not need to be told how much to drink during exercise.”

So, drink when you feel thirsty and play hard the rest of the time!
