Top 5 ways to relieve pain without over-the-counter pain medications

When dealing with daily pain like in your  lower back, muscles or knees, it can be easy to take some ibuprofen or acetaminophen to take the edge off. But when you don’t want to rely on over-the-counter medications to relieve pain, many other options are available to try. Heat and cold, distraction techniques, breathing exercises, healthy habits and getting external help may make a difference for you.

Not all these techniques work well for everyone. So try out a few or even combine some to find a management solution that works well for you. If you struggle with pain and these techniques don’t help, a pain management team may be able to help you find a solution.

Watch the video for examples that may help relieve your pain.
