Pain is one of the most common problems that the general population suffers from. While pain can vary from mild to more severe levels, it is important to note that pain itself is not a disease, but rather a symptom that signals an underlying problem. In some cases, pain may be caused by something insignificant, such as a minor injury, but in other cases, pain may be an indication of a more serious problem that needs to be attended to in order to avoid potentially life-threatening complications. Pain symptoms may vary in how they feel, ranging from prickling and tingling sensations, to burning, aching or stinging sensations.
How Pain Affects The General Population
Pain can affect any person at any time, young or old. The symptom can develop due to a large number of reasons and is usually classified within two broad categories – acute pain and chronic pain. Acute pain refers to pain symptoms that appear for a relatively short period of time and then resolves, while chronic pain refers to pain symptoms that are more consistent. Medline Plus explains that acute pain is usually caused by injuries, but may also be caused by inflammation or by certain illnesses. Chronic pain is often a symptom related to a long-term illness, such as arthritis or cancer, and usually causes more complications in a person’s life as compared to acute pain.
Conventional Pain Management Options
With pain being an unpleasant and disabling symptom, people are often searching for ways they can reduce the pain they are experiencing so that they can get back to their daily lives. A number of different pharmaceutical options are available to help a patient alleviate pain and, should the pain be accompanied by inflammation, certain medication can also be utilized to relief the inflammation along with the pain.
There is a large number of different pain medication available on the market, each with their pros and cons that should be considered prior to use. It should also be noted that not all types of pain should be treated with the same medication; thus before pain medication is taken, it should first be considered the reason why pain symptoms are being experienced. The severity of a patient’s pain also needs to be taken into account when determining what type of medication to use and the dosage of medication that should be administered to the patient.
WebMD explains that the most common types of medication that are administered to a patient who experiences pain symptoms include:
- Acetaminophen, such as Tylenol
- NSAIDs, also known as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as naproxen and ibuprofen
In cases where pain is more severe, prescription medication may be provided to a patient. These may include opioids, corticosteroids and prescription nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. There are cases where a doctor may prescribe anti-seizure medication to a patient should they be suffering from pain caused by nerve damage. Some patients are also prescribed antidepressants or lidocaine patches.
While these drugs are often able to provide a significant level of relieve when pain is experienced, they also come with some potential side-effects that may be unpleasant. Cleveland Clinic explains that opioids, a rather common type of painkiller, can cause constipation, hormone imbalance, a weak immune system and even depression in the long run. NSAIDs, common painkillers used to treat inflammatory pain, can cause nausea and vomiting, constipation, diarrhea, dizziness and drowsiness, as reported by RxList.
Bioresonance Therapy’s Role In Pain Management
When a patient turns to alternative methods to assist them with reducing their pain symptoms without having to take high doses of pharmaceutical drugs that are used for pain management, they are often able to experience less significant side-effects. Bioresonance therapy is often utilized in order to read the body’s magnetic waves and to interpret them. This may assist a patient with understanding why they are experiencing pain symptoms, and may also assist with identifying potential stressors, toxins and other problematic areas of the patient’s body that needs to be attended to. Bioresonance therapy also has the ability to adjust the signals that were obtained from the patient’s body in such a way to better allow their body to heal itself; thus offering a method that can often assist with alleviating acute pain or reducing the severity of chronic pain.
Pain can affect a person due to a large number of reasons, ranging from a simple injury to more serious causes, such as the development of a chronic disease like arthritis. When pain occurs, it is important not to disregard the symptom, especially when it does not go away after a few days. Chronic pain is often a sign of a more serious underlying health condition that may lead to potentially fatal complications left untreated. Bioresonance therapy assists with pain management in different ways, such as by detecting potential stressors and toxins, as well as reducing painful symptoms through the utilization of the body’s internal electromagnetic waves.
