Musculoskeletal Pain Relief

I pride myself on having a very high tolerance for pain. I’m not really the type of person who would always resort to medications when I have body pains. The only time I take oral drugs or use topical solutions is when I can’t bear the discomfort any longer.

A few years ago, I went to see a doctor because I was having a tingling feeling in my right pinky finger whenever I’m working with my hands. It turned out I had arthritis. I was advised to stay away from certain foods, to put hot compress on the affected area, and to apply topical gel twice a day until the pain and swelling subside.

I know there are people out there whose tolerance for pain is too low that the only means to alleviate what they’re feeling is to receive medications. It is a known fact, however, that not all drugs are without side effects. Is it possible to relieve musculoskeletal pain without drugs?

The answer to that question is a resounding yes. Egoscue Inc., a pain management clinic, introduces a unique and highly effective program of providing pain relief. Instead of using drugs, surgery, or manipulation, the Egoscue Method involves stretches and egoscuecises (“e-cises”) that strengthen specific muscles in the body. This serves to properly align the body and help prevent musculoskeletal pain. They have clinics in the U.S., Mexico, and Japan.
