Wherever you live and whoever you are, it doesn’t matter. People should have at least one single thing in common – to want to be healthy. However, that’s not always the case. All you have to do is look around you and see how many are practicing sports or physical activities and how many are learning how to life a healthy life.
However, there’s one thing that everyone has in common – the pains that can appear from one reason or another. Nobody can guarantee you a life free of pain, but you might learn how to do some things in order to reduce the frequency of those pains.
Let’s talk a little about pain relief, and what you can do about it, when it occurs.
Whenever you exercise, your body releases different hormones that help you out on the long term. This is because it’s not just about the effort that you have to put up with for 30 or 40 minutes, but it’s about what you do after this and how you feel the days that come. It was proven that exercising can be addictive – the more you work out in the gym, the more you will miss it when and if you stop.
The truth is that if you exercise too much, you can feel soreness in all your body – your muscles will feel the strain that they have been put to and everything will hurt. When this happens, you need to do something for it.
First of all, you need to take an Aspirin and make a hot bath. If it’s possible, fill the tub with hot water and add some salt – that will make your body relax and your muscles to get relief. It’s important to stay at least 30 minutes in that water, to help your body fully.
If you have a headache, you can take something based on Ibuprofen, but make sure that you are allowed to take it. This medication has side effects for those who have problems with the stomach, so better check the prospect before you take any of it. If you really can’t stand the pain, just go to the pharmacy and they will surely give you something that you can take without a prescription.
There is also something else that you can do to relief the pain. Fill the tub with very hot water and put your feet there for as long as you can. This will make the blood flow easier through the vessels of your body, starting from your feet.
If you bump on something and you feel like you will make a bruise on your body – it can be located
almost anywhere, there’s an easy solution. All you have to do is take a bag of ice and place it on that spot. This is because the ice will prevent the spreading of the blood in the deep tissue. That’s how bruises appear actually – fine blood vessels break and the blood spreads under the skin. The ice will prevent this at a considerable level, but it won’t make the pain necessarily go away at once. What it will do however, is that it will reduce the swelling and the color, and you won’t feel such an intense pain.
Things change however, when you’re talking about a stomachache or another located pain, because that could mean other severe problems. Of course, the stomachache could be because you have not eaten or you have eaten too much. If those are not the case, and you don’t have an explanation for the pain you are feeling – no matter where it is located, it might be a very good thing to see a doctor who is specialized, or even your family doctor.
