Universal Pain Conditions
Unfortunately, pain is all around. We could all walk around dressed head to toe in bubble wrap to prevent painful accidents, but we may still twist the wrong way and pull a muscle, stress ourselves out and get a headache, or just grow old and develop a condition caused by the wear-and-tear of our bodies.
The one thing we can control is how we manage and treat pain. There are many solutions available; it's just a matter of choosing the best option based on our condition. Obviously, not all pain can be treated in the same way. Typically, you wouldn't go through surgery to treat a muscle strain, and fibromyalgia may need more attention than just sleeping it off. To treat your pain, you need to understand why it hurts. Is it an acute pain that comes on suddenly or a chronic pain that's been lingering for days and gaining intensity?
