Queen Creek, AZ 85142 – Southwest Spas and Southwest Spas and Pools, selling swim spas, lap pools and aquatic fitness systems Queen Creek and Apache Junction shares, “3 Ways to Manage Pain.” Melinda Dalacas, manager of Southwest Spas and Pools says, “September is a great time to take advantage of pain awareness month, and learn new ways to reduce pain and understand how chronic pain may affect others.” Having more than one method of handling pain can give people a more effective long-term treatment plan, so they can use what works best and what their current mood allows. Here are three great ways to manage pain.
Exercise in a Pain-Free Environment – Exercise is a well-known method for dealing with pain. It can be difficult to get motivated to exercise while in pain, though. Swimming makes it easier to accomplish this pain relief technique, but it isn’t always easy to find a pool, and often it involves paying costly membership fees. Installing a swim spa in the backyard is an excellent way for people who deal with constant pain to get the buoyant benefits of hydrotherapy for pain without looking for a pool, or paying to use one.
There are several ways a swim spa can help people deal with pain, whether it is caused by injury or illness. A swim spa is small enough to fit into compact areas, and yet gives plenty of room to swim freely thanks to the technology of swim currents. With a swim spa, people dealing with pain can complete any of their favorite swim strokes in place, swimming against the current. The buoyancy of the water keeps stress and strain off of the muscles and joints while getting the exercise to keep them moving freely.
Swim spas are great for stationary exercises as well. Any type of aerobic exercise that people can do on dry ground, can be accomplished in the weightless, impact-free environment of the swim spa, and having a hot tub side also lets people relax, relieve pain and stress at the same time as well.
Deep Breathing Techniques for Pain Relief – A study published by Harvard Health Publishing suggests using deep breathing techniques to control pain. In looking for ways to reduce the side-effects of medications to reduce long-term pain researchers found that deep breathing techniques was helpful for all of the types of cognitive pain relief including meditation and yoga. The effort to control breathing and relax using simple techniques brought on a sense of peace while at the same time, relieving the tensions caused by pain.
TENS Treatment for Pain – TENS stands for transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation, and is especially beneficial for people dealing with muscle related pain. During TENS therapy, strategically placed electrodes are placed in the areas dealing with pain, and low-voltage currents are pulsated through them. Physicians and physical therapists use large units, but there are also smaller, battery operated TENS machines people can use in the comfort of their own homes
