Acute pain is the body’s alarm signal, traveling fast from the injury up the spinal cord and into the brain. Acute pain alerts you to a problem happening right now. But chronic, ongoing pain can stem from a traumatic event or an underlying health condition triggering painful sensations. When pain lingers for 12 weeks or more, it’s considered chronic. Managing chronic pain can reduce stress and help return life to balance.
HOLISTIC WAYS TO MANAGE CHRONIC PAIN
Energy medicine (Reiki and others)
