Got Pain? 5 Remedies To Ease Pain

radrollerMost people would answer yes to this question.  Most of us have some sort of pain at some point.  Well, aside from ACUPUNCTURE, which is  great for pain relief, as you well know, here are my top 5 pain remedies that you can do at home.

1. RadRoller.  I have been using a RadRoller for a couple of years now and it is amazing for releasing pain.  Whether you have been sitting too long in the car or at your desk or you really went for it at the gym, this little rubber therapy tool will help to loosen you up and release the pain all over your body.  According to RadRoller, “Our tools provide controlled, acute point release, move waste materials out of your soft tissue and encourage proper spinal alignment. And when used regularly, they help unlock your body’s true movement potential whenever it fits in your schedule.”  These are some of the many benefits of using the RadRoller besides pain relief that you can experience…

  • Release restrictions
  • Flush out built-up toxins
  • May relieve muscular pain
  • Benefit blood and lymph flow

 

 

2. HylaRub.  I use this cream after (and sometimes before) I work out to ease shoulder pain.  It’s also great if you have been on the computer or phone for too long and your elbow starts to ache.  It really helps to take the soreness out of an inflamed joint or tight muscle.  It’s officially designed to soothe and maintain joints and muscles for an active lifestyle. It contains a patented blend of ingredients including Hyaluronic Acid, CMO (Cetyl Myristoleate) to lubricate the joints and Emu Oil to penetrate deep into the skin. HylaRub™ is a non-greasy, easy to apply topical cream. It contains a little peppermint oil so that’s all you smell, no nasty medicated smell.

4. Magnesium Oil Spray.  Magnesium spray is almost like a mobile or portable Epsom salt bath.  The magnesium is well absorbed through the skin to help relax tight muscles and angry nerves.  Don’t let the name fool you, it really isn’t oily so it’s easy and perfect to spray on topically throughout the day. Magnesium spray, just like an Epson salt bath, helps to ease muscle tightness as well as calm overactive nerves.

5. Curcuma Myalgia.  Curcuma is a western herbal based formula.   It helps to ease pain and inflammation. I wrote an entire post dedicated to just this product. In the post I break down each of the ingredients and their function in the formula.  If you’d like to review it, just click here.  Just a couple of capsules a day will keep pain away.  This formula is good for joint pain, headaches and even menstrual cramps.  It is a great alternative to ibuprofen or Tylenol.

In order to stay on top of pain, the first thing you want to do is use a RadRoller regularly to keep your fascia and muscles loose.  Secondly, if you do have an accident, overdue it at the gym or and old injury flares up on you a combination of ACUPUNCTURE, herbs and topicals should get you moving again.

Of course we have all of the above tools available here at the Center.  Just call for more information or to order pain relief supplies.
