Injury and pain staying healthy

You can reduce pain from a injury with pain management techniques
  If you have a injury from sports or an accident the pain can be over whelming. Here is some help with the discomfort by using pain management techniques.  When rehabilitating from a injury you need to try and reduce the pain involved which will help in a faster recovery. make sure to see a doctor if the pain is severe.You should stay positive in your thoughts and keep anxiety to a minimum. You should have short and long term goals to heal and recover from your injury. You need to choose to be smart and work on getting through the pain from your rehab program. If you are being negative will only cause a slow healing process and can cause more pain.  Deep breathing will help you  relax and get oxygen to the injured area which will lesson the pain. Meditation of soothing imagery such as laying on a beach, floating in space,etc should be included with your deep breathing. Therapeutic massage of the muscles,tendons,and ligaments is also vital to help you recover. You need to acknowledge the pain and what area of the body it is centered in. This will help your mind focus on the internal healing process.   You need to developed a positive attitude to manage the pain. Your process to recovery is dependent on your over all attitude and continuing your therapeutic routines. You must not over work the injured area, all this will do is increase the pain and slow down the healing. Your short term goal is to reduce the pain , swelling and have a positive mental state. You can control this by restricting activity , using ice on the injured area. Protect the injured area and decrease movements will help with the painful muscles,ligaments,and tendons.
