Fibromyalgia isn’t simple body pain that goes away when you pop a painkiller or two, adjust your sleeping position, or warm up before a workout. With chronic fatigue and pain due to the brain’s neurons actively firing pain signals even with no physical trigger, there may be no real cure for the condition yet, but there are ways to curb the pain. To achieve this, the best and most holistic method is effective lifestyle management, much like a survival and endurance guide for patients and their loved ones. Recently, pain and lifestyle management for fibromyalgia has included laser therapy treatment.
Are you ready to turn your life around in a few, quick steps? Check out these lifestyle tips - essentially our day-to-day guide for surviving fibromyalgia:
Food for the Body and Mind
Food isn’t just to nourish your body and supply you with essential nutrients. With a balanced diet of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, it’s easy to stay on top of your health. But with fibromyalgia, it’s a little harder to do that with diet alone. When you have fibromyalgia, you’ll have to pay extra attention to what you eat, making sure to avoid caffeine and highly-processed foods as these can exacerbate symptoms.
With chronic pain constantly wearing you down, it sounds much easier to just stay in bed - exercise being the last thing that could possibly cross your mind. But in reality, exercise is one of the simplest ways to ease pain from fibromyalgia, as it boosts your energy levels, releases endorphins (feel-good hormones), promotes better sleeping, and most importantly, strengthens your muscles to prevent them from atrophy with lack of use. For long-term pain relief, it’s best to try aerobic, strengthening, and flexibility exercises at a slow pace for a start. And with regular use of your HandyRx laser therapy treatment device, you can avoid painful muscle strains.
Wind Down with a Massage
It’s no secret that getting a massage is one of the best ways to relieve stress. Regular sessions over time can even ease pain from fibromyalgia. Combined with decreased stiffness and swelling, increased flexibility, and improved range of motion, you can slowly return to your regular lifestyle despite the condition.
Don’t Stress Out
Easier said than done, but still true and absolutely necessary, stress can exacerbate pain and other symptoms from fibromyalgia - and that’s why it’s important to deal with it. Try relaxation techniques such as mediation and deep breathing to instantly improve your mood. Additionally, make time for things you love that help you feel relaxed, like a warm bubble bath or reading a good book. And at night, make sure you get enough, quality sleep so you feel rested and energized to take on the next day.
Use the HandyRx Laser Therapy Treatment Device
With the HandyRx laser therapy device at your side, you can easily fight pain from fibromyalgia and achieve relief in just a short period. Proven to treat and help manage a wide variety of pain-related conditions, many fibromyalgia patients like yourself are turning to low level laser therapy to be in better health.
What’s even better is that the HandyRx laser treatment device is nontoxic and noninvasive - meaning, it doesn’t use potentially toxic drugs to deliver relief; nor does it require cutting into your tissues to treat pain at its roots. Rather, the HandyRx uses laser to deliver four rehabilitative energies deep into affected tissues, resulting in improved microcirculation and reduced pain-causing swelling and inflammation. Best of all, you won’t have to go to laser therapy clinics for treatment, as the HandyRx is designed for optimal handheld use - making it easy to take pain relief for fibromyalgia with you on the go as your muscles become strong enough for you to be active again.
