Exercise

While it may seem like the last thing you want to do when you are in pain, exercise can be one of the most beneficial things that you can do. 

Exercise is, in fact, one of the most common treatments for pain. Obviously, it will only work if you are mobile, but still, it’s extremely effective. Two of the best forms of exercise that can help increase mobility, reduce inflammation and decrease pain levels are walking and swimming. 

Scientists have shown on many occasions that when you exercise, you release endorphins and natural opiates, and together they help dampen any of the feelings of pain you may have. 

Light exercise is thought to be one of the best ways to treat mild to moderate headaches and the benefits to your heart are also incredible.

Supplements 

Over the years, there have been many claims from magic supplements. While some are nonsense and there is absolutely no proof that they work at all, there are some supplements out there that do work a treat.

If you have back and joint pain, for example, you could benefit from Turmeric, Comfrey or even Full Spectrum CBD. All of these have shown to have some positive effect on pain, and they can all be purchased from your local health store.

The one thing that is important to note is that if you find a supplement that makes some amazing claims, you will generally find that it’s too good to be true and has no scientific backing whatsoever.

Yoga & Relaxation

One of the biggest pains in the world at the moment is mental health. Mental health is now thought to be a huge problem, especially among millennials. According to recent studies, there has been a 47% increase in major depression diagnosis and for most people, they deal with this by using medication.
