I was struck by a book I read recently about dealing with pain. It reviewed lots of background information about pain, the brain, nerves etc. as well as all the different kinds of treatment options there are.

What struck me was that the book highlighted that there is often no single answer to pain but it is lots of little things that work together to each bring a little bit of improvement, that overall can eventually lead to a sense of healing and recovery. Maybe not 100% but 5% here and 10% there with everything adding up to improvement.

I’ve thought about this over the last few months and have tried to ‘combine’ lots of little things that should help with my issue – where as in the past I might have tried one thing concluded it didn’t work and moved on to the next.

I now think that the lots of little things do work together much better than I could have hoped. I encourage anyone who is battling with pain or injury or trying to recover from illness to think about their situation, and whether this idea might help there!

  • may I ask what the book was called??


  • Thanks for your story and for sharing your experience and I agree a combination of strategies and techniques can help with pain management. Everyone should research this area and look into all forms of pain relief for their own particular situation which includes any medical conditions. There is a wealth of information available online and in libraries and from medical professionals and other credible people on pain relief. There is also a lot of products available for pain relief and in managing pain relief. Stopping pain before it impacts on pathways is the way I manage pain, early management of pain with a variety of techniques. Good luck to you and anyone that has to manage ongoing pain.


  • Unfortunately most don’t seek advice about the cause of their pain before taking painkillers. Sometimes they actually aggravate the problem. Some painkillers if taken too often can cause organ damage such as liver or kidney.
