  • When Migraine Becomes Chronic

    When Migraine Becomes Chronic

    Migraine involves intense, throbbing headaches, often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. These headaches are never pleasant, but if they occur almost daily, they can seriously disrupt your life. If you experience 15 or more headache days each month, you’re likely dealing with chronic migraines. About 2.5 percent of people with episodic migraine transition to chronic migraines every year. You don’t have to settle for living most of your days in pain. Bring these questions to your doctor so you can get started on treatment to reduce the frequency and intensity of your symptoms.

  • What You Need to Know About Joint Pain

    What You Need to Know About Joint Pain

    Joints form the connections between bones. They provide support and help you move. Any damage to the joints from disease or injury can interfere with your movement and cause a lot of pain. Many different conditions can lead to painful joints, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, bursitis, gout, strains, sprains, and other injuries. Joint pain is extremely common. In one national survey, about one-third of adults reported having joint pain within the past 30 days. Knee pain was the most common complaint, followed by shoulder and hip pain, but joint pain can affect any part of your body, from your ankles and feet to your shoulders and hands. As you get older, painful joints become increasingly more common.

  • I Don’t Like Meditating. Here’s Why I Do It Anyway

    I Don’t Like Meditating. Here’s Why I Do It Anyway

    I don’t like meditating. But when I do it regularly, life is better. Stress is lower. My health improves. Problems seem smaller. I seem bigger. As much as I’m loath to admit it, I’m not a fan of meditation. It comes unnaturally to me, despite my 36 years of martial arts study and interest in self-improvement, health-hacking, and general enlightenment. I realize this speaks poorly of me as a person, kind of like my opinions on Aikido, jazz music, pumpkin pie, and “A Prairie Home Companion.” That I’m not fond of them doesn’t mean they’re bad, it means I’m not as good as I could be.

    Complementary Therapies for Chronic Migraine

    If you experience migraines, your doctor may prescribe you a preventive or acute treatment to manage the condition. Preventive medication is taken every day and helps to keep your symptoms from flaring up. Acute drugs are taken as an emergency in the instance of a migraine attack. You may have to try out a few different medications until you find one that works for you. It can be frustrating, but everyone responds to treatment differently, and you have to find your best fit.

  • Back Care for Lower Back Pain

    Back Care for Lower Back Pain

    For everyday causes of lower back pain, standard at-home pain management is a reasonable approach. In fact, most cases of lower back pain are caused by a muscle strain and will get better relatively quickly and do not require treatment from a medical professional. If pain has lasted longer than one to two weeks or begins to interfere with one’s mobility and daily activities, or if there are troubling symptoms, seeking care from a medical professional is recommended.

  • Acupuncture Considerations

    Acupuncture Considerations

    Acupuncture is considered a safe medical treatment. For this reason, many physicians and practitioners believe that acupuncture is a beneficial treatment as an adjunct to other medical treatments, and/or as an alternative to medical treatments. In certain situations, acupuncture may be used in combination with conventional painkillers, or to replace them altogether. In 1998, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) released a statement that said there is enough evidence to demonstrate that acupuncture had beneficial pain-relieving qualities in adults experiencing postoperative dental pain, as well as nausea from chemotherapy. The NIH also found that acupuncture might be useful as a treatment for low back pain, as well as many other conditions, such as headache, myofascial pain, osteoarthritis, and carpal tunnel syndrome.
