From A Massage Therapist: Diet and Exercise

1. How substantial a role do you feel diet plays in pain management? What is your top recommendation?
I think diet is vital to good health, ESPECIALLY pain management. My top two suggestions are; -Drink Plenty of Water: There are some great apps for your smart phone that can help you determine how much water you should drink and remind you to drink throughout the day. "Water Your Body" is the one I use. -Eat What Makes You Feel Good: I don't mean Ben and Jerry's after a break up. I mean what physically makes your body feel nice. There are no one-size-fits-all guidelines. Maybe salad makes you feel light and energetic, maybe a steak is what gets you through the day. Spend some time getting to know what makes your pain levels better or worse, keep a journal, know your body!

2. How substantial a role do you feel exercise plays in pain management? What is your top recommendation for style/duration/etc?
I'm as terrible at keeping up an exercise routine as the next person. I like to put aside the thought of 'exercise' and instead focus on movement. Stretching and walking can be the best things for pain management. Just be aware and reminds yourself to move your body! (Top Secret Tip: Dancing to your favorite music is the BEST for this.)

  4. I totally agree that when you are sore, you really have to watch what you are doing. Like you, I try to walk and stretch when ever I have any kind of pain. It helps a lot because the joints are warm as well as your whole body and the muscles are not a tender. http://www.painreliefplace.com/emsproducts
