Our bodies are changing every day. I personally don’t have many ‘aches and pains’. Those that do….Why do you have these? Do you have a health problem? Do you have a medical condition? Where are your aches and pains?
Some aches and pains are caused by ourselves… let me explain….if you do certain things like lying in bed a certain way, this can cause neck pain, headache, arm pain, back pain, poor old mattresses can cause all these aches and pains as well, sitting in chairs or settees which are not comfortable for you. Lifting things which you shouldn’t be lifting because they are too heavy for you, or you are lifting them by bending over and hurting your neck or back in the process.
Do check that you are not inadvertently doing something like this which is causing you to have aches and pains every day. And self massaging painful areas, which you can reach every day, and going for massages which will help stiff, aching joints.
One of my thumbs started with repetitive strain injury, caused by taking my mum to shopping in an electric ‘chair’, she couldn’t drive it, so I had to do it. After doing this repeatedly, my thumb became very painful. But I am a qualified massage therapist and holistic therapist, so if I have any aches and pains, I try to alleviate it myself. So, I massaged my thumb and joint. This hurt, sometimes it hurts when you massage an area, but eventually, I sorted out the painful area, sorted out the injury, until it became fine again, and pain free. And of course I had to stop doing the repetitive action, that caused it.
Don’t leave painful joints, and simply take pain killers for them. They won’t get better on their own. As soon as something starts to hurt, this is an indication to seek help, to seek a way to sort out the problem, also of course take analgesics as well. But even painful joints caused by arthritis can be massaged.
Here’s looking to a painfree 2020 for you.
