5 non-invasive pain relief techniques that really work

Sometimes pain has a purpose — it can alert us that we’ve sprained an ankle, for example. But for many people, pain can linger for weeks or even months, causing needless suffering and interfering with quality of life. If your pain has overstayed its welcome, you should know that you have more treatment options to address this. However, here we’ve listed eight techniques to control and reduce your pain that don’t require an invasive procedure — or even taking a pill.

  1. Cold and heat.These two tried-and-true methods are still the cornerstone of relieving pain for certain kinds of injuries. If a homemade hot or cold pack doesn’t do the trick, try asking a physical therapist or chiropractor for their versions of these treatments, which can penetrate deeper into the muscle and tissue.
  2. Exercise.Physical activity plays a crucial role in interrupting the “vicious cycle” of pain and reduced mobility found in some chronic conditions such as arthritis and fibromyalgia. Try gentle aerobic activities such as walking, swimming, or cycling.
  3. Controlling

As we embark on the new year, we have one question…How is the health of your family? We know that you value your spinal health, but what about the spinal health of your family? Our spines our made of bone which encases the most important system in our body…our central nervous system. The system controls everything in your body including your immune system. Our spine will break down, just as any joint or bone will. We call this spinal degeneration or degenerative joint disease. A subluxation is when 2 or more bones in the spine stop moving properly and this sets the stage for degeneration and can happen at any age. Care from Dr. Lawrence keeps our spines healthy and hereby keeps our nervous system free from interference that can affect how the body functions.

Christmas 12 tips

  1. Set SMART goals (Specific, Measurable, Action Oriented, Realistic, Time Frame). Research shows it takes roughly 30 days to develop a habit. Set the goal and make several small changes to achieve it. Specific – what, when, where. Measurable – how much, how often. Action Oriented, Realistic- set attainable goals so you don’t end up discouraged. Time Frame – set a date to reach certain goals.
  2. Consistency is the key – You are what you repeatedly do. Health and Wellness are not achieved in one event; they are created through good habits and healthy choices the whole year through.
  3. Make an appointment with yourself for activity – Set some time aside for your activity of choice and make it part of your schedule. Twenty to thirty minutes per day, three to four times per week is a good start. Something as simple as a brisk walk after the last meal of the day is a great way to get started. Put it in the day planner.
  4. Enlist an activity buddy – Have a friend, family member or partner join you in your venture. Working with people who share common goals will give you the added boost when you need it the most.
  5. Grocery shop only after having a good mea l- You will

Do you have gut instincts or have you ever felt butterflies in your stomach when you’re nervous? Have you ever felt like your stomach is cramping when trying to make an important decision or you became nauseous when something just didn’t feel right? This is because your nervous system and digestive system have a huge impact on one another. The connection between the brain and the gut is a two-way street called the gut-brain axis. The brain controls the gut, but the gut also affects the brain. By ensuring proper communication between the brain and the body via specific chiropractic adjustments you are improving this communication, however, to really take your health to the next level you must also balance your gut bacteria. So how do you improve your gut flora? Start by having your nervous system tested for interference and rebalancing it through proper chiropractic adjustments. Then, add in good sources of healthy bacteria in the form of fermented foods such as sauerkraut, pickles, kimchi, olives, yogurt or kombucha. If you aren’t a fan of sauerkraut, then get your hands on a good probiotic supplement. Good supplements indicate the number of live colonies in each capsule before its expiry date. Shoot for a brand that has several different types of bacteria with a minimum 10 billion per capsule. For children, we recommend buying probiotic powder that can be mixed into pure
