The holiday season is upon us! "It's the most wonderful time of the year..." but suffering from a painful condition can diminish the ability to fully enjoy and participate in all the seasonal festivities this time of year has to offer.
At Florida Pain Relief Centers, our expert pain management physicians are committed to providing solutions that help reduce suffering for people in pain, and restore them a more enjoyable quality of life. If you are living with pain, we'd like to offer the following useful information to help make your holidays more merry and bright...
Many factors can influence your painful condition. Here are five tips for better pain control over the holiday season:
- Take frequent breaks.
Holiday commitments and family often spur us to push ourselves past our comfortable level of activity. Plan to take regular breaks to rest.
- Take your medications as prescribed.
Take your medications as prescribed and according to your providers prescription, avoid changing your dosing without your providers approval.
- Stay warm!
Some patients report that their pain increases with colder weather, make an effort to keep warm, avoid cold draughts and outside activity if your pain worsens with cold weather.
- Avoid overexertion.
It can be tempting around the holidays to go-go-go! Remember the best gift is you and your company.
- Revel in the good!
The holidays can bring an added level of stress or even sadness as we remember loved ones. Focus on the good, and don’t hesitate to talk to your provider if you are finding it difficult to cope.
Our best wishes for a happy and healthy holiday season, and a prosperous New Year.
