Can pain-free be drug-free?

Medications aren’t always the answer to pain relief. Alternate methods have been used for generations – some with success, some not. As with any treatment, you should discuss this with your doctor. Many physicians incorporate alternative therapies with traditional medicine to find the best solutions for their patients.

If the pain is stress related, like many headaches and some backaches, some
people may find stress relief from:

  • relaxation techniques
  • aromatherapy
  • massages

Other alternative therapies may also provide relief. These include:

  • acupuncture
  • biofeedback
  • chiropractic

There is nothing wrong with needing pain relief – it shows that you care for your health and well-being. In fact, if short-term pain is left untreated, it could worsen or progress to long-term pain. Make sure you ask your health care provider for a therapy that is best suited to you.
