Pain Management – How To Fight Chronic Pain

Pain Management - How To Fight Chronic Pain

Chronic pain management does not refer to taking pain killers alone. It includes daily activities, exercises and changes in your lifestyle which will help you live a life that is not dictated by pain.

First, persons who are suffering from chronic pain should, like with all other illnesses, avoid or reduce stress and relax a lot more. There are many ways to reduce stress using common everyday activities. One is listening to music. It has been scientifically proven that music eliminates or diminishes stress. Stress has always been known as a factor that aggravates pain.

Persons with chronic pain should keep stress at a minimum in order to keep pain at bay. Aromatherapy is another effective way to drive away stress and pain. Similarly, a good massage can also melt all those worries and anxieties away leaving one in a completely relaxed state. It is also a good idea to take meditation classes. Learn to isolate the body from distractions and stress through meditation. If meditation classes are not an option, one can use deep breathing techniques instead. Quietly breathing in and out deeply for several minutes relaxes the body and the mind. Also, getting enough sleep is one of the best ways to promote relaxation and reduce stress. It does not matter which method is taken and people with chronic pain may even find their own unique ways of coping with stress. What matters is the understanding that one needs to treat his body well by allowing it relax more and not subjecting it to unnecessary stress.

Second, persons who suffer from chronic pain should not limit their activities. They should, in fact, exercise more. It has been proven that exercise increases the production of endorphins. Endorphins are chemicals which are released by the pituitary gland that act as …

10 Must Haves of Medical Website Design

Medical website design is not much different from designing other websites like that of a school or a boutique hotel, but it is different. These are apparently contradictory statements, but let us explain.

You can’t go wrong with medical website design if your website has these elements:

Services Tab: This should be prominently displayed towards the upper part of the website; after all, your target audience has the most interest in what you have to offer.

10 Must Haves of Medical Website Design

Before and After Photos: These will serve to substantiate all that you have claimed under the Services column and thus strengthen the target audience’s belief in you.

Physician Photograph and Biography: This is an often neglected feature of medical website design. But if you put yourself in the shoes of your patients, you will realize that it is often the credentials of a physician that inspires confidence among your target audience and motivates them to give you a call.

Contact Form: Many among your target audience may access your website at work from where they cannot make a call. Include a contact form in your medical website design to make it convenient for them to schedule an appointment or request information.

Blogs and Other Relevant Bits of Educational Resources: Including educational resources like blogs and articles in your website will not only ensure that your target audience turns to you when they are in need of medical information but also help your search engine optimization cause.

Social Media Bar: A social media bar prominently displayed on every page of your website will encourage and prompt visitors to share your content.

Patient Testimonials and Reviews: In an industry where the word-of-mouth is still the best advertising ploy, patient testimonials and reviews are the most effective alternative promotional measures.

News and Media: If you have been …

Cat Health – Treating Your Cat at Home

Basic Wound Care

Trim the fur around the affected area and clean the wound carefully, using a damp washcloth and antiseptic soap. This must be done each morning and evening for five days. The wound should remain uncovered for approximately three days, allowing it to drain. This helps to prevent abscess. Licking is a natural part of healing, so allow your cat to lick his wound for three days. After three days it is helpful to apply an antibiotic cream and outfit your cat with an e-collar to prevent licking. If your cat is lethargic or stops eating, he could have blood poisoning. See your veterinarian immediately.

Ear Mites

Ear mites are tiny white parasites feed on the skin debris of cats and may chew on the tissue within the ear canal. Your cat may find them itchy or even painful and typically responds with excessive scratching of his hears or tilting his head to one side. Ear mites leave behind a waxy brown substance that looks like coffee grounds.

Cat Health - Treating Your Cat at Home

To treat ear mites at home combine a clove of garlic with a cup of olive oil and let it sit overnight. Discard the garlic and put a few drops in each ear every third day, for three weeks.

Cat Flu

Cats can get the flu, and it makes them feel miserably. Their little noses and eyes run and become swollen, and they typically begin sneezing.

It is important to keep your cat eating while she recovers. You may need to warm his food or add a little garlic to make it more palatable. Take him into the bathroom with you when showering, so he can breath in the humidity. Using a soft warm cloth, wipe his eyes and nose as needed. Each day give him 250 mg of vitamin …
