Chronic pain is never something we'd like to endure, but it affects us at one time or another.
Whether you've been gardening and felt something strain as a result, or started to mould your spine to your office chair, you're going to inevitably set yourself up for some form of unwanted discomfort.
Instead of reaching for a healthy amount of ibuprofen, turning to natural herbal remedies could provide a long-term, sustainable solution to ease the tension on your body.
So, without further ado here's how Chinese herbal remedies may assist with chronic pain relief...
What causes chronic pain?
Chronic pain occurs when there's an important reaction of the nervous system that helps alert the brain to the source of the injury.
General injuries typically become less severe as your body works through the healing process, although chronic pain can be relentless.
With some cases of this pain lasting anywhere between a few weeks to even years, it's important to address these issues and suppress the pain where possible.
What are some common symptoms?
With this build up of pressure, long-term chronic pain can limit your mobility, strength, flexibility or endurance, making it increasingly difficult to go through everyday life without some bumps in the road.
Some examples of chronic pain include:
- Persistent headaches
- Lower back pain
- Weakness causes by constant pain
- Psychogenic pain
- Post-trauma pain
- Neurogenic pain
What are the potential solutions?
Utilising Chinese herbal remedies is a fantastic and sustainable way to potentially ease the symptoms of chronic pain in the body.
