Regardless of our age, from time – to – time, we often experience a variety of aches, and pains. Some may be indications, of something, more serious, and acute, while others, may be due, to activities, aging, over – use, etc. Only a foolish individual, will try to make that determination, without first consulting, a trusted, qualified, health professional! If, and when, something serious, is ruled – out, them (and, only then), should you, focus on the best way, for you, to treat, what ails you. With that in mind, this article will attempt to, briefly, consider, examine, review, and discuss, 3 non – invasive treatments, which have demonstrated effectiveness, for many of these types of conditions.
1. Massage therapy: Especially, for ailments, which have their origins, in over – use, stresses and strains, such as after performing strenuous activities, such as household chores, sports – related aches and pains, etc, there has been, much evidence, massage therapy, may be, a good, course of action. Beware, however, all massage therapists are not created equal! In many states, there are Licensed Massage Therapists, who, have undergone specific training, and demonstrated, a professional degree of expertise. Muscle – related ailments, when properly manipulated, often relieve much of the discomfort!
2. Acupuncture: Acupuncture has been effectively used, successfully, for centuries, and is one of the oldest, continuous, successful treatments. A Licenced Acupuncturist (LAC), is required to take a considerable, course of study, in the area, and, while, it may not always, get the results you seek, has minimal (if any) side – effects, and/ or dangers! This therapy works, not by the regular health approach, by addressing, what are referred to, as, meridiens, where the small needles, are applied, to address specific ailments. Personally, I have experienced great results, when I have been treated for many discomforts, such as: relieving post – dental/ oral surgery traumas/ spasms. trismus, etc; reducing the discomfort from back – aches; addressing some of the symptoms of arthritis – related ailments/ symptoms (in my shoulder, knee, etc). As a rule of thumb, you will best treat, what hurts you, when you proceed, without prejudice, and, with, an open – mind!
3. Herbal treatments/ salves: There has been, quite a bit of anectodal evidence, certain herb – based, salves, are extremely helpful, in temporarily addressing, many aches and pains!
Wise individuals are ready, willing, and able, to consider, with an open – mind, alternative therapies, for specific aches, and pains! Are you willing to try to help, what ails, you?
