• Can Relaxation Relieve Pain?

    on Mar 15th, 2016

At any given moment, approximately 100 million Americans suffer from chronic pain which is difficult to diagnose, a term used to describe persistent pain that lasts longer than six months. This is caused by pain signals remaining active in the nervous system for extended periods of time, from a few months to even years. After suffering for that long, it’s no wonder people look to all kinds of methods for a bit of pain relief.

Over the past 25 years, chronic pain research has demonstrated that pain is influenced by both emotional and social factors. When you are chronically stressed, the stress itself can actually trigger chronic pain. There is some light at the end of the tunnel here as you can get natural pain relief by simply using simple relaxation techniques alongside your typical pain management regimen.

Read on to learn about different exercises you can use to reduce stress and relax your body and mind.
