How Simple Lifestyle Changes Can Help Reduce Chronic Pain

Lifestyle Changes - Chronic Pain

At Florida Pain Relief Centers, our board-certified pain management physicians rely on various alternative treatment methods to help patients live a more pain-free lifestyle.

Sometimes a pain condition warrants a minimally-invasive surgical procedure for relief, but in many cases, pain may be reduced by way of daily lifestyle changes, such as quitting smoking, reducing stress or even simple stretching techniques.

Here are some tips that you can use daily to reduce your pain:

  • Remember to stretch every day. Stretch gently and not to the point of pain, avoid bouncing movements, rather breathe deeply and allow your breath to take you deeper into the stretch. Do not stretch to the point of pain.
  • Use proper ergonomics at home and at work, sit in supportive chairs and try not to slouch while sitting.
  • Modify your mattress for comfort; this may even mean replacing your mattress with one that is supportive.
  • Use proper posture while sitting, driving and working. Try to sit up straight, with your shoulders pressed back.
  • Use proper lifting techniques and get help when lifting heavier items. Practice good lifting techniques even for lighter items.
  • Try aquatic therapy or physical therapy; if you have tried this and had a less-than-satisfying experience with one therapist, it is often helpful to try another center or therapist.
