Pain Relief Advice for an Overworked Denver Mom

Denver Chiropractor

overworked momWho wouldn’t want quick pain relief?

Sometimes pain relief can come in different forms. I had a conversation lately that I think might be of help when you’ve put too much on your plate and you’re in pain.

Here’s the gist of the way the conversation went…

A mother of 3 young children had issues with intense upper back and neck pain, headaches and fatigue. She just plain felt that she was in her words, ‘getting old fast.’

Being pregnant, giving birth and all the post-partum duties of being a mom are very physically demanding. The adaptations and demands on the body during and after pregnancy can create changes which can lead to pain.

In this case it effected her not just physically, but hormonally and biochemically. Now throw on top of that a few other big life changes personally and professionally and you have a recipe for pain. The biggest point I helped her understand was this…For what she went through it was actually quite appropriate for her to be experiencing what she was feeling.

She should be in pain.

It was a natural response to how much she had been through.

I told her that what can’t be overlooked is the fact that just as the moon wanes and waxes and the tides rise and fall, your body goes through cycles, sometimes in days or weeks. Sometimes months and years.

What she was experiencing now was cyclical… and very natural in response to the stresses she was going through. That doesn’t mean she has to ‘tough it out’ and suffer; there was still a lot we could do for her to help shorten the cycle and get through it with minimal upset and keep it from turning into a chronic condition.

Proactive health care can help shorten those cycles.

For her to not view her symptoms as permanent, I think helped her more than anything. Peace of mind in the midst of turmoil.

We all go through major life changes that will ultimately have an effect on our health- both body and mind.  Circumstances like she went through can combine to seem insurmountable.

One of the important lessons here is that the symptoms may manifest in ways you may not expect. She had changes in her blood work, mood, energy levels and even sleeping patterns-apart from just hurting all over.

My advice…see the big picture, learn lessons from the pain, see blessings in the midst of crisis and most importantly realize that the consequences may be temporary.

I believe it’s wise to value and respect the laws of nature and to learn our limits… and the consequences.

Just as we parent our children, Mother Nature parents us.  A true master is the one who listens to the inner wisdom of their soul. Listen to your symptoms for pain relief advice from within.
