Nerve, Muscle Joint Pain Cairns

Headache massage cairns – Aches and pains of the nerves, muscles and joints are as common as headache and back pain (although back pain is effectively an example of problems in all three of these areas). The source of such pain is not always clear; especially in conditions of the nervous system, such as sciatica, when the site of the pain is often not where the real problem lies. The back is, in fact, the origin of many aches and pains in the nerves, muscles and joints – even when the pain occurs in the hands, arms, legs, and feet.

Natural self help is largely a matter of applying immediate pain-relieving therapy where possible, and then trying to identify effective long-term treatment. Most effective immediate natural pain relief is provided by massage with essential oils, by devices such as TENS, intasound, massagers, and electromagnetic pulsers, by hydrotherapy, by acupressure, and by pain-relieving herbs. Long term is often best provided by exercise, by postural and stretching movements, by dietary changes and food supplementation, and by psycholgical relaxation therapies.

Nerve Pain

a number of different terms are commonly used to describe the various types of nerve pain encountered. The main terms used are neuralgia (meaning pain resulting from injury to a nerbe, particularly the face), sciatica (pain mediated by the sciatica nerve, running from the lower part of the spine down each leg), and neuritis (inflammation in any nerve).

Nerve pain -m aching, tingling, pins and needles, and a stabbing or burning sensation are the most common – can be caused by a number of factors, both physical and psychological, but the main ones are circulatory insufficiency, poor posture, wrong diet, stress, and over-exertion. Natural therapies can ease discomfort and acclerate the recovery process.

Nutritional and dietary therapy

Headache massage Cairns – Eat plenty of green vegetables and fresh fruit. If a reaction is suspected to something that has been eaten a fruit or vegetable juice 48 hour cleansing diet can help. Supplementation is recommended as follows vitamin A, C, E, B complex, the minerals magnesium, calcium, and selenium, and both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Bromelain, an enzyme extracted from pineapples, is a natural nerve anti-inflammatory agent. Take up to 3g a day between meals. A good quality muti-nutrient, available from good drugstores and health food stores, contains most the supplements needed.

Herbal Medicine

Regular teas of ginseng, hops, Jamaican dogwood, Pasque flower, passion flower, hypericum, skullcap, and valerian are recommended for nerve pain. Garlic milk that is two crushed garlic cloves in half a pint of milk drunk daily can help sciatic pain.

Electronic devices

TENS or GigaTENS is highly effective at treating most nerve pain although it does not seem to be quite as good at treating post-herpes neuralgia. Hand-held devices such as massagers/vibrators and intrasound are also effective if applied firmly enough for long enough – at least 45 minutes. A frequency of 100Hz works best.

Relaxation and Yoga

Stress Management techniques such as meditation and biofeedback can be helpful, together with postures that concentrate on stretching, especially those that tone the spine and back muscles, coupled with breathing exercises. Advice from a trained teacher is best in both cases.

Hydrotherapy

Alternating ice and hot packs helps to relieve pain and promote recovery. A neutral bath that is bathing in water at body temperature is soothing. Gentle exercise such as swimming combined with sauna or steam bathing is helpful.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

This is inflammation of the carpal tunnel, a tube of sinew through which the nerves and tendons of the arm travel to the hand. The inflammation leads to swelling, which pinches the nerves and produces tingling, numbness and pain in the hand. It affects particularly the first and index fingers and thumb. It is most common in pregnant and elderly women. Surgery is the otpion normally offered by conventional medicine.

A wholefood diet (fresh fruit and vegetables, particularly celery) promotes recovery as does supplements with a range of nutrients, especially essential fatty acids (EPA and GLA) vitamins A, C, E and B complex, minerals magnesium and calcium, and the enzymes bromelain and papain.
