In Pain?

We’ve recently encountered cases where patients who have been taking Advil experience bleeding when the acupuncture needles are removed. This led to some discussions on painkiller safety and some points for you to think about:

  • Advil and other ibuprofen products should not be used for more than three days in a row
  • always take medicines according to instructions and at the suggested intervals
  • unless you have liver problems, Tylenol Arthritis can be a good alternative for aches and pains
  • for kinked necks and backs, try a chiropractic treatment
  • acupuncture can be valuable for pain relief
  • massage the sore areas with a blend of an essential oil with a carrier oil, for example peppermint mixed with coconut oil, which you can purchase at health food stores or bulk food shops
  • exercise in moderation for natural pain relief
  • apply cold to the area for no longer than 20 minutes at a time
  • try the hot tub also, but for twenty minutes at most
