Effective Methods Of Pain Relief

Author : Brad Rodriguez


When you have pain, there are a number of different things you can do in order to alleviate said pain. But one of the most effective methods of relieving pain is merely distracting yourself.

Your brain is a powerful healing tool, one which many of us forget to use when our bodies are stiff and our joints are achy.

The moment you begin to feel pain, your mind focuses on it. Your attention becomes diverted to that particular part of the body and also you begin to forget about other things in your life - it is no surprise the pain becomes so bad.

But as the brain can become hyper-focused on pain, it can be just as easily led to think about not hurting. Here's how.

. Watch something

Among the easiest ways to begin to drive yourself to distraction is to turn your focus onto another thing. You might want to pop a movie into your DVD player or begin to watch your favorite Tv series. When you do this, you can start to focus on the characters as well as their lives, as opposed to your personal issues. If you have regular bouts of pain each day, at more or less specific times, you might want to choose one daily program to look at in order to create a ritual of avoiding the pain sensation you feel.

. Do something

Whenever pain starts to hit, start doing another thing. This might include anything from knitting to gardening, walking to shopping. Find another thing that will occupy your time and your attention in a way that will distract you from the discomfort. It doesn't really matter what you select to do as long as you react immediately to the pain to find something else to focus your attention on.

. Call someone

An easy way to distract yourself is to call someone else and begin to talk. Of course, within this conversation, try to avoid referring to your pain as that will only increase your likelihood of feeling more uncomfortable. Speak with a sibling, a parent or gaurdian, or a child to see what they're doing and to begin to relax your body and your pain.

. Thought stopping

A traditional psychological technique is thought stopping. This is often practiced in a number of ways. You might like to simply say NO to yourself any time you have a thought about pain, for example. This will begin to teach your brain that pain and NO are associated, that will eventually teach your brain to not think of pain as often. Another way to go about this practice is to use a rubber band to snap your wrist each time you begin to think about pain. That way, you stop your thoughts immediately and can alter the way you think.

. Redirection of thinking

Instead of thinking about your pain, you should try to look at the places within your body that do not hurt. This way, you are always concentrating on what's good about your body instead of what's bad about this. While this does take practice, it's just like changing your mindset to become optimistic. Over time, redirecting your thoughts becomes a habit.
